Embracing a bicycling culture has helped them to foster a team atmosphere while encouraging a healthy lifestyle for employees. They increase safety for all bicyclists by including information about safely driving near bicyclists in their annual drivers training (many of their employees are out on the road in trucks for work) and sometimes include bicycle related topics in monthly safety meetings. They provide secure bicycle parking protected from the weather, locker rooms with showers, bicycle information during new employee orientation, and have staff designated as the ‘go to’ people to help bike commuters. Although they are a small organization, their team in the annual Shasta Bike Challenge is a force to be reckoned with! For ideas on how to be a bicycle friendly business click here.
