Bicycle Indiana is pleased to announce that four Indiana businesses have been recognized by the League of American Bicyclists as “bicycle-friendly.” Among them is DePuy Orthopaedics in Warsaw.
Summit City Bicycles and Fitness of Fort Wayne earned a Silver award as a Bicycle-Friendly Business; Angie’s List and A1 Cyclery, both headquartered in Indianapolis, were designated as Bronze Bicycle-Friendly Businesses and DePuy Orthopaedics was also awarded the designation of a Bronze Bicycle-Friendly Business.
Evansville’s Deaconess Hospital and Lincoln Financial Group of Fort Wayne earned honorable mention as a Bicycle-Friendly Business. These entities join a visionary group of more than 400 local businesses, government agencies and Fortune 500 companies across the United States on the Bicycle Friendly list.
“Of the 61 businesses named ‘Bicycle-Friendly’ in the fall 2012 awards, four of them are in Indiana,” said Nancy Tibbett, executive director of Bicycle Indiana. “We’re excited to see that trend and momentum grow.”
Bicycle Indiana is a nonprofit membership organization that promotes safe bicycling; educates bicyclists, motorists and policy-makers; and advocates for laws, policies and infrastructure to increase bicycling in Indiana.
Last summer, Bicycle Indiana and the Indiana State Department of Health hosted a “Planning for a Bicycle-Friendly Community” seminar in nine communities around the state.
“Being named a bicycle-friendly community or employer allows you to say ‘We’re progressive and we care about health, fitness, the environment and livable communities,’” added Tibbett.
