Omaha Businesses Step Up!

President of the League of American Bicyclists Andy Clarke recently visited Omaha to describe the Bicycle Friendly Business program. The League administers the program free of charge as a way to encourage companies to take the next step in promoting bicycle commuting.

Of interest was Clarke's emphasis on the non-work trips, which account for about 85% of all trips. He recommended that businesses find ways to help employees make these shorter, easier trips as a gateway to longer rides.

Learn more about the program at Omaha is the proud home of over ten bicycle friendly businesses as described in earlier posts here.

I can tell you how to make short trips more convenient. Install bike racks. I can't believe the number of places that still don't have them, or anything at all to chain to. Omaha has been getting better, but there is room for improvement.
