JANESVILLE, Wis. (AP) -- A southern Wisconsin city is working toward becoming a more bike-friendly community.

Janesville officials plan to create bike corridors that will connect the city's east and west sides. The city also plans to add bike lanes along Court Street. Officials have applied for grants to connect off-road trails for cyclists and pedestrians.

The city recently honored two local businesses for their efforts in promoting the bicycling community.

Terry Nolan is coordinator of the Janesville Area Metropolitan Planning Organization. He says officials hope to boost the quality of life in the city.

The city has also applied to be recognized as a bicycle-friendly community by the League of American Bicyclists. The league will examine the city's infrastructure, enforcement, education and plans related to the bicycling community.
