Spoke-n-Sport Brookings is Now a Gold Bicycle Friendly Business
Spoke-N-Sport is now a League of American Bicyclists recognized Gold Bicycle Friendly BusinessSM (BFBSM)!
On Wednesday, Spoke-N-Sport joined a cutting-edge group of over 1,300 local businesses, government agencies, and Fortune 500 companies across the United States that are transforming the American workplace.
“Business owners and employers across the country are looking for simple, straightforward ways to build their companies, do right by their workers and customers, and contribute positively to their local communities,” says Executive Director Bill Nesper of the League of American Bicyclists. “Boosting participation in bicycling achieves all of that and more, and BFBs such as Spoke-N-Sport are wonderful models of that success. We congratulate this latest class of business leaders for recognizing that one of the oldest and easiest forms of transportation still generates significant economic and societal rewards today.”
BFB requirements identify incentives, programming, and amenities proven to enable and inspire more people to ride bikes. Among those offered by Spoke-N-Sport are educational classes, local rides, and cycling advocacy at the local and state level. In addition, Spoke-N-Sport offers secure bicycling parking for both employees and clients and showers for those employees that have a longer ride to work.
“The best part of the Bicycle Friendly Business program is being able to use it as a tool to sharpen our axe. We want to make sure that we are meeting and exceeding the needs of cyclists everywhere. This program and the application process is a great reminder.” Chad Pickard
