The League of American Bicyclists has awarded The Path Bike Shop a Bronze designation for the Bicycle Friendly Business (BFB) program!
The League of American Bicyclists made the Spring 2011 BFB official announcement during the National Bike Summit hosted in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday, March 9th, 2011. 55 new Bicycle Friendly Businesses from restaurants to law firms received awards at this year’s summit.
Efforts to welcome and support bicycling can be as simple as offering secure bike parking or organized rides to get folks together on bikes. Businesses across the country are seeing that there is a good return on investment in promoting bicycling in the workplace including improved morale and health, reduced parking costs and promoting a healthy and sustainable lifestyle to customers and employees.
Promoting bicycling is a simple solution to many challenges we face as a nation - improving sustainability, physical activity and quality of life. The League of American Bicyclists’ Bicycle Friendly America program has helped communities, businesses, states and now universities improve conditions for bicycling, creating the types of places where people want to live, work and visit.
The League of American Bicyclists promotes bicycling for fun, fitness and transportation, and works through advocacy and education for a bicycle-friendly America. The League represents the interests of America's 57 million bicyclists, including its 300,000 members and affiliates. For more information or to support the League, visit www.bikeleague.org
