Bike Friendly Business Lunch & Learn

We know that you are all doing a lot at your place of employment to encourage people to bike to work. Many of you are also lucky enough to work places that also go above and beyond to encourage bicycling. Here is an opportunity to get your business nationally recognized for your efforts while also helping Omaha’s vision of becoming an officially designated Bike Friendly Community!

Several Omaha businesses and organizations have already applied for and received League of American Bicyclists’ Bike Friendly Business designation … and we know that there are many more out there that easily fit the requirements. During a presentation at last year’s National Bike Summit, Omaha received special recognition for the number of BFB awards that were given out, and we’re hoping to blow them away again this year!

Check out the League of American Bicyclists’ website and then attend a lunch & learn to find out more about the application process and how Activate Omaha can help!
