This morning at Interbike in Las Vegas, the League of American Bicyclists awarded WABA a Gold Bike Friendly Business award. These awards are given out twice per year, and the Fall 2010 award class includes one platinum, three golds, twenty-seven silvers and thirty-one bronzes. We’re extremely proud to be recognized by the League for all of our hard work and we want to congratulate all the other awardees–especially our fellow DC-area recipients! The Bike Friendly Business awards program “recognizes employers’ efforts to encourage a more bicycle friendly atmosphere for employees and customers” and “honors innovative bike-friendly efforts and provides technical assistance and information to help companies and organizations become even better for bicyclists.” We’re certainly honored to have been awarded the Gold level for our first time applying, but you can be sure that we won’t rest until we’ve earned Platinum!
