What is a Bicycle Friendly Business? It’s a business or organizations that takes steps to make it easier for their employees to commute by bike (thereby supporting employee wellness, productivity, and satisfaction) as well as making it inviting for customers to arrive by bike (which contributes to a vibrant community and high quality of life). For examples of how your business can be more bicycle friendly, see the examples of the local nomination form or visit the League of American Bicyclist’s website.
