Getting the gold star is still a good thing, years after elementary school. 

The city of Ashland's friendliness to bicycles just earned it a gold star from the League of American Bicyclists. 

And that's big jump from its previous bronze status, winning Ashland the title of "Most Improved Bicycle Friendly City" in the country.  Public works director Mike Faught joins us to explain the changes in city accommodations for bicycles that improved its status.
