New Nominations for Bike Friendly Businesses are Now Open
Mayor Menino and the City of Boston are committed to making Boston a vibrant and healthy city that benefits all its citizens. Our Bike Friendly Business awards recognize local companies taking steps to be more bike friendly. Nominate your business or organization for an award! Application Deadline: March 16, 2012, 6 PM.
Mayor Menino’s Annual Bike Friendly Business awards recognize companies that incorporate bike-friendly practices to encourage their employees or customers to ride. Each year, more Boston companies than ever before applied for “bicycle-friendly” status. Gold, Silver, and Bronze awards are awarded according to the number and scope of bike friendly practices a company undertakes.
Basic practices include installation of outdoor bike racks, financial incentives for bike commuters, or hosting a commuter fitness contest for employees. More significant steps are recognized at a higher level, such as providing secure, covered bike parking, or promoting shower facilities for commuter employees.
Businesses that win an award are invited to attend a special ceremony with Mayor Menino where they receive a certificate and a coveted “Mayor Menino’s Bike Friendly Business” sticker to proudly display in their business.
