Spring 2013 Bicycle Friendly Businesses Announced

The League of American Bicyclists has released their latest Bicycle Friendly Business (BFB) list, and the City of Shawnee has earned a Silver level Bicycle Friendly Business designation, the second silver in the state!

The City of Shawnee had previously been designated as an “honorable mention” Bicycle Friendly Business, in 2010, so it’s nice to see them take the big jump up to silver.

Shawnee is also a bronze-level Bicycle Friendly Community, a designation that it first earned in 2003.

Bicycle-friendly businesses “encourage a more bicycle friendly atmosphere for employees and customers.” Being bicycle-friendly is not only good for people, but good for business as well!

If you own, work at, or are aware of, a bicycle-friendly business that has not yet been officially recognized, check out details of the Bicycle Friendly Business program. The program provides technical assistance and information to help companies and organizations become even better for bicyclists.
