Bicycle Friendly Business Development
The League of American Bicyclist’s Bicycle Friendly Business initiative was created to give businesses of all sizes, all over America, a set of guidelines, incentives and tools to transform their workplaces.
In addition to Fort Collins’ standing as a Platinum-certified Bike Friendly Community and Colorado State University’s designation as one of five Platinum universities, Fort Collins currently leads the US with the number of Bike Friendly Businesses.
Bike Fort Collins has invested in a development program that provides workshops, mentorship, and application support and review to interested businesses. The Bicycle Friendly Business Network team, that provides these services has been critical to Fort Collins reaching its current level of participation. And they’re excited to ramp up the efforts to enlist more businesses, help ranked businesses to keep climbing, and engage platinum-level businesses to share their expertise and experience to continue to shape the culture.
