Salisbury, Maryland is rapidly becoming more and more bikeable. With the creation of the Salisbury Bicycle and Pedestrian Advisory Committee, increased infrastructure, and an active bicycling advocacy group in Bike-SBY, Salisbury is on its way of becoming a Bicycle Friendly Community. But even still, there are no Bicycle Friendly Businesses on the Eastern Shore despite the rise of bicycling in the region. Being a bicycle friendly business has important benefits in terms of employee attraction and retention, moral, and servicing your customers. As an added benefit, more businesses that are bike friendly in a community increases its status as a Bicycle Friendly Community.
Please join Bike Maryland and Bike-SBY as we teach you what it means to be a Bicycle Friendly Business and how you as an interested employee or business owner can apply and win recognition as a Bicycle Friendly Business. This is a FREE event thanks to the support of the Community Foundation of the Eastern Shore!
