How to Create a Bike-Friendly Workplace

Posted by Rebecca Bilodeau on May 15, 2016 12:30:00 PM

Bike commuting is on the rise, with small convoys of cyclists spinning down Boston’s Southwest Corridor Park, along the Esplanade and across the Mass Ave Bridge. Commuters cycle for many reasons: to maintain their health, to save money on gas or public transit, and to limit their environmental impact.

In addition to these benefits to employees, creating an office culture that celebrates cycling creates benefits for employers.

Promoting bike commuting also demonstrates your commitment to the community and environment by helping keep polluting cars off the road and encouraging employee well-being. Check out the steps below to create a bike-friendly workplace.
