"With a LEED Platinum office space and recognized by Bike Pittsburgh as a bike friendly employer, we realize the importance of cycling and the myriad benefits it has for our staff, their health, and the planet. Even in a very sustainably-minded organization like Green Building Alliance (GBA), of 19 staff and interns, there’s a mix of regular, seasonal, occasional, irregular, and non-bikers. Whether the GBA bicyclist is GBA’s CEO or intern, those of us who have ever used our current bike room find it sad and dingy. We believe that a gorgeous new bike room from Dero could become the centerpiece of our LEED Platinum office – and we would love to show it off to the hundreds of people who tour our office space every year, whether on formal tours or just as general visitors. Our vision for the coolest bike room in Pittsburgh starts with our commitment to biking as an alternative to carbon-based transport and showcasing how Dero’s fabulously awesome products make bike commuting, transportation, storage, and display all easier, fashionable, sustainable, and fun! Above all, we look forward to inspiring more people to bike to work, reduce their carbon footprint, and lead healthier lives!"

"At BikeTexas, we're all about bicycles and bicycle advocacy. Most of us ride to work year-round, even through the Austin summer when 100°+ days are the norm. Our office also offers bike rentals during special events in town and hosts VIP bike rides for elected officials, plus other events that require our bike fleet. Between our fleet bikes and our personal bikes, it's hard to move around our office sometimes. We need a Dero Dream Bike Room so we have a dedicated space for staff bicycles as well as an easy-access, easy-to-use place to stage our bicycle fleet for events, all while keeping our floor space available for feet. We’d love to use our Dream Bike Room as a learning experience and a model for what indoor bike parking can look like at workplaces across Texas—especially when elected officials and city planners visit our office and get inspired. A Dero Dream Bike Room will help us make Texas a great place to ride a bike!"
