Bicycle Friendly CommunityThe City of Roseville was the first city in Placer County to be honored with the prestigious Bicycle Friendly Community Award in 2008. The accolade was renewed in 2017. Municipalities actively supporting bicycling for fun, fitness and transportation receive the award from the Bicycle Friendly Communities Campaign.

Roseville boasts nearly 100 miles of on-street bike lanes and 38.4 miles of off-street bike paths (as of summer 2021). 

While honoring Roseville at the bronze level, the League of American Bicyclists cited Roseville Bikefest, a family-friendly bicycle safety event, as an example of the City’s commitment to bicycling. The League also cited the City’s installation of bicycle lockers for commuters as an example of the City’s commitment to bicycling.

The Bicycle Friendly Community designation is awarded by the League of American Bicyclists and considers a community’s record in promoting bicycling in five categories: education, engineering, enforcement, encouragement, and evaluation. The cities of Davis, Folsom and Sacramento are other locally honored communities.
