Bike League Names 2 New Minnesota Bicycle Friendly Businesses


Bicycles in MinneapolisAt 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!
