At the League of American Bicyclists 2011 National Bike Summit, the League named the 2011 recipients of the Bicycle Friendly Business designation. Minnesota is already a leader in this category, with 38 BFBs as of 2010. Two new businesses received this designation today — the City of Minneapolis, and Clockwork Active Media Systems, a local interactive agency.
The Bicycle Friendly Business program is one of several programs within the Bicycle Friendly America program administered by the League, and honors innovative bike-friendly efforts and provides technical assistance and information to help companies and organizations become even better for bicyclists.
With the addition of these two businesses — Minneapolis at the Gold level, and Clockwork at the Bronze — Minnesota has a total of 40 Bicycle Friendly Businesses. At 38 in 2010, Minnesota was the national leader in this designation. I have not yet double-checked, but think it’s pretty likely that Minnesota has kept the crown.
Congratulations to these two designees!
