Be A Bike Friendly Business


The League of American Bicyclists has honored five more Fitchburg businesses and non-profits as Bicycle Friendly Businesses (BFB), bringing the total in the area to 18. This recognition places them among over 1,300 organizations nationwide that are striving to create a more bicycle-friendly America.“We’re proud to celebrate this round of new and renewing Bicycle Friendly Businesses who are investing their resources to not only build up bicycling in the workplace but in their communities as well,” said Bill Nesper, executive director of the League of American Bicyclists.“When businesses choose to join our movement for more and better bicycling, the return on investment is clear for both businesses and the community at large — from employee retention and cost-savings on healthcare to fostering a greener environment and getting more investments in the local economy.”


Bike Fitchburg and its partners on the Fitchburg Bicycle & Pedestrian Commission are proud that Fitchburg is now ranked tenth in the nation for the number of Bicycle Friendly Businesses per municipality, outranking Madison, Milwaukee, and Minneapolis! As the local bicycle advocacy group for Fitchburg, Wisconsin, Bike Fitchburg works with the mayor, council, and city staff to make biking of all kinds and walking easier, safer, more fun, and more equitable.“We continue to support the business outreach by Bike Fitchburg, the Fitchburg Chamber, and the city’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Commission,” said Julia Arata-Fratta, Mayor of Fitchburg. “I know that residents, businesses, and visitors come to Fitchburg because of our bike culture and facilities, and that benefits everyone here, not just those who bike. To be recognized as a national leader for Bicycle Friendly Businesses makes this round of awards even more special!”
