Kansas City, MO (PRWEB) April 25, 2014
BikeWalkKC recognized SPIN! Neopolitan Pizza as a bicycle friendly business at a Handlebar Happy Hour event on April 24. BikeWalkKC organizes the program to recognize businesses that go the extra mile to support the cycling community, and they need the community’s help.
Some features of a bicycle friendly business include:
Ample and well-placed bike parking
Well-maintained sidewalks and paths to the business
Near transit routes
Discounts for people who arrive on foot or bike
Support for local walking and biking clubs, groups, and causes
Programs to encourage employees walking, biking, and taking transit to work
Eric Rogers, Executive Director of BikeWalkKC, says there are numerous benefits for businesses to become bicycle friendly. “Businesses that encourage cycling in the community play a vital role in making the Kansas City area a better place to live, work, and play. Their investment in the cycling community is an investment in the future of a healthier city, and we want to reward their efforts,” Rogers said.
One of the reasons SPIN! Neopolitan Pizza was chosen was due to its longtime support of local bike culture. "SPIN! is not only a valued supporter of BikeWalkKC and our events and programs, but they also host many inclusive and welcoming rides throughout the year to encourage people to ride bikes," Rogers said.
