FBC and the League of American Bicyclists will host a Bicycle Friendly Business (BFB) Workshop on Tuesday, March 29th, at the Community Room in the C. Burr Artz Public Library. This is a free event open to anyone interested in learning more about the League’s Bicycle Friendly Business Program.

The League of American Bicyclists’ Bicycle Friendly Business (BFB) program recognizes employers who make bicycle commuting a more viable option for their employees by providing resources such as secured bike parking and showers. In doing so, businesses are demonstrating their dedication to social responsibility by helping their employees maintain an active lifestyle, while also reducing traffic congestion and improving air quality.

Bill Nesper and Carly Sieff from the League of American Bicyclists will host a workshop on how to become a BFB, providing step-by-step technical guidance on making your workplace a more bicylce friendly environment to work in. The workshop will also include the following panel of speakers:

– Richard Griffin from the City of Frederick Department of Economic Development

– Toole Design Group , a League designated BFB from Hyattsville, MD

– Paul Doran from Edenred speaking on the Bike Commuter Tax

Add your business to the growing list of BFBs across the country!

When: Tuesday, March 29th, 1pm – 4pm

Location: C. Burr Artz Public Library*, Community Room,110 East Patrick Street, Frederick, MD 21701
