Monadnock Buy Local, in collaboration with the Monadnock Alliance for Sustainable Transportation (MAST) and the Bicycle Mayor of Keene, is surveying local businesses to assess how "Bicycle Friendly" they currently are. This effort will take place annually in May, during Bicycle Month, to help amplify individual business efforts, overcome obstacles and monitor progress.
According to the League of American Bicyclists (The League), "Bicycling can help your business create more energized, alert, and productive employees, decrease your healthcare costs, attract and retain top talent, and draw more customers."
Monadnock Buy Local invites all Monadnock Region business owners to take this survey at http://bit.ly/bikemonth2018.
The survey uses questions from The League's Bicycle Friendly America Program. This program supports and recognizes states, communities, business and universities working "to make bicycling a real transportation and recreation option for all people." More information is available at http://www.bikeleague.org/business.
We also encourage businesses interested in becoming a Bicycle Friendly Business to contact MAST. MAST members are available to help businesses fill out this application. Contact: Jen Risley at firstname.lastname@example.org; 603-499-7950.
