League of American Bicyclists certified Bike Friendly Businesses (BFBs), and has become the
FIRST city to reach 50 bike friendly businesses, Bike Fort Collins, Northern Colorado’s oldest

Northern Colorado can join the Network to receive free support and guidance in applying for
certification. The BFB program is both a form or recognition and a set of guidelines that help
interested businesses create spaces and culture that encourages staff to ride, and provides ease of
access to cyclist customers Bike Fort Collins regards BFB development as a critical piece of
our mission, and celebrates BFBs by featuring selected BFBs in newsletters and blogs.
According to local BFB organizer Kurt Freiburg, the program makes great business sense. “It
provides local and national recognition of your leadership while building community among
like minded businesses. Our team offers no-cost workshops and hands on support during your
application process.”

Join the other 1,132 BFBs across the nation, that are transforming their communities by creating
more bicycle friendly destinations and workplaces. Apply to the program and see how bicycling
can help your business create more energized, alert, and productive employees, decrease your
healthcare costs, attract and retain top talent, and draw more customers.
