The League of American Bicyclists hosts a program called The Bicycle Friendly Business (BFB) program.
Bikes are good for businesses and their employees. Through the League's Bicycle Friendly Business? (BFB?) program, employers are recognized for their efforts to encourage a more welcoming atmosphere for employees, customers, and the community.
The program also honors innovative bike-friendly efforts and
provides technical assistance and information to help companies and
organizations become even better for bicyclists.
