4 REASONS TO BECOME A BIKE-FRIENDLY BUSINESS:
Bike infrastructure is good for business - A study in Toronto concluded that "the addition of bike lanes would be unlikely to harm local businesses and predicted that commercial activity on the street would increase.”
Being recognized as a bike-friendly business shows customers you value the planet and healthy communities - Referring to a study of Greater Portland, "marketing to cyclists is likely to generate a positive expenditure return for businesses...”
Encouraging employees to bike reduces healthcare costs - "Increased levels of fitness and health...result in real cost savings and employers have healthier employees who miss fewer days of work."
Bicycling customers spend more per month than driving customers - “People who had biked and walked to the area reported that they spent more money in the area per month than those who drove."
