Bicycle Friendly Business of 2017: Redding Rancheria

Redding Rancheria Named Bicycle Friendly Business of 2017

Redding Rancheria has been selected as the Bicycle Friendly Business of 2017! This award is offered by Healthy Shasta, Redding Chamber of Commerce, and Shasta Living Streets for excellence in making it safe, convenient and inviting for their employees, customers and the community to bicycle more often.

Just a few examples of what Redding Rancheria does include: 

  • Make bicycling easier and more convenient. They offer bicycles for employees to use for free during breaks, after work or even on the weekend. They have showers, fresh towels, and lockers rooms at several locations that employees (and patients of their downtown clinic) who commute by bike may use. They offer bicycle parking at all their locations.
  • Encourage people to try bicycling. They encourage employees to participate in activities such as the Shasta Bike Challenge by offering small group rides and providing incentives like bike jerseys to employees who give it a try.
  • Make it fun. Redding Rancheria added a fun twist utilizing the Mayors Mt Bike Challenge trail maps to encourage employees to get out and explore our local trails. They painted some rocks blue, placed them out of the various trails, and gave prizes to employees who got out to find a rock and take a selfie.
