With so many people in our community biking, we’re working to support your health and well-being.
We’ve joined the movement of 1,416 local businesses, government agencies, and Fortune 500 companies across the United States in transforming the American workplace to be more welcoming to our customers and employees who bike. We know so many more of you are biking during the pandemic, and we are proud to support the health and well-being of our community by being more welcoming to people choosing to bike.
“Since London-Laurel County Tourist Commission applied for the Bicycle Friendly Business award in February 2020, much has changed across the country,” said Bill Nesper, executive director of the League of American Bicyclists. “What hasn’t changed is the commitment of our Bicycle Friendly Business award winners to the health and well-being of their employees, customers, and community through the promotion and encouragement of bicycling as a means of transportation, fun, and fitness.”
London-Laurel County Tourist Commission joins 75 other new and renewing BFBs in the League’s Spring 2020 round of BFB awards, which includes government agencies, Fortune 500 companies, bike shops, and others across industries, all united in a commitment to transform American workplaces to be more welcoming to customers and employees who bike. The Bicycle Friendly Business award recognizes an organization’s contributions over months and years to the movement to build a Bicycle Friendly America for everyone.
