Bettendorf is bicycle friendly! 

Bettendorf's investments in separated trails, recreational trails, and bike lanes have earned the City a spot on the League of American Bicyclists' Bicycle Friendly Communities list. Every year, the league ranks each state on how "bikeable" they are, and Iowa is currently ranked the 30th "most-bikeable" state. The league awarded Bettendorf the Bronze award in 2018, marking Bettendorf as one of the most "bikeable" cities in the country.
