Today, the League of American Bicyclists announced 91 new Bicycle Friendly Businesses (BFB) from across the country, extending the program to 43 states and Washington, D.C. Rotating Mass Media, our parent company we share with our mountain bike magazine, Dirt Rag, joins 90 other businesses as 2013 awardees. These new awardees join a trendsetting group of more than 600 local businesses, government agencies and Fortune 500 companies across the United States that are transforming the American workplace.
“I’m super-stoked that Rotating Mass Media has been selected as one of the few Gold Level Bike friendly businesses,” said Rotating Mass Media’s publisher, Maurice Tierney. “We’ve been doing our best to advocate cycling for the past 25 years, the recognition is awesome. We’ll continue to work to make a whole world of gold-level cycling!”
Bicycle Friendly Businesses encourage a more bicycle-friendly atmosphere for employees and customers alike. BFBs attract and retain energized, alert and productive employees, while decreasing healthcare costs.
Rotating Mass Media, the parent company of Bicycle Times and its sister magazine, Dirt Rag, was one of four companies given Gold status in 2013.
Several government organizations were also among the honorees:
The National Park Service, which manages the nation’s parks and National Mall, moved up from Bronze to Silver this round.
The Federal Communications Commission moved up from Bronze to Silver this round. The FCC has seen its number of bike commuters double since the agency received Bronze, and leaders look forward to even more participation with this latest announcement.
Also based in D.C., the International Monetary Fund is a new Bronze-level business. The IMF boasts more than 400 registered bicyclists in its workforce.
