Congratulations to the newly named Bicycle-Friendly Businesses in the #1 Bicycle Friendly State.
Today the League of American Bicyclists released its list of new additions to the list. Notably, Seattle Children’s Hospital moved up from Gold to receive a Platinum-level Bicycle Friendly Business award.
“Seattle Children’s has long been at the forefront of sustainable transportation; we pay a daily bonus to incentivize staff to leave their cars at home, provide one of only a few on-site staff bicycle service centers in the nation, offer staff access to free commuter bicycles and helped launch Seattle’s bike share system by serving as its first business sponsor,” said Jamie Cheney, Seattle Children’s Transportation Director, in a release from the League. “We promote bicycling because we believe it is good for the health of our patients, staff, community and the planet. Seattle Children’s is delighted to be recognized with the League of American Bicyclists’ highest honor, the Platinum-level Bicycle Friendly Business Award.”
