COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

Columbus is designated a bicycle friendly community, and now another business also claims that title. 

On Friday morning, the River Valley Regional Commission announced they are now one of 11 businesses in the state to have the designation. They are also only the third in Columbus. 

Julio Portillo, the regional bicycle pedestrian planner, says they have been bicycle friendly for a while, but now it's official.

"A part of receiving that designation, by having bicycling friendly businesses, and by having a recycling friendly community with our employees, we figured it was time to apply for the designation,” Portillo said.

The designation was awarded at the business by the League of American Bicyclists from Washington, D.C.
