BRONZE-LEVEL BICYCLE FRIENDLY BUSINESS
Today, the League of American Bicyclists recognized Quincy Engineering with a Bronze Level Bicycle Friendly Business (BFBSM) award, joining more than 1,000 visionary businesses from across the country.
With the announcement of 100 new and renewing BFBs today, Quincy Engineering joins a cutting-edge group of more than 1,050 local businesses, government agencies and Fortune 500 companies in 47 states and Washington, D.C., that are transforming the American workplace.
“The business community’s investment in bicycling is playing a central role in making the country a safer, happier, and more sustainable place to live and work,” said Amelia Neptune, League Bicycle Friendly Business Program Manager. “We applaud this new round of businesses, including Quincy Engineering, for leading the charge in creating a bicycle-friendly America for everyone.” Bike riding promotes active living and improves the quality of the work environment.
Engineers with bike riding/commute experiences are also able to incorporate that familiarity into their design process to improve transportation facilities. Moving forward, Quincy Engineering will have access to a variety of free tools and technical assistance from the League to become even more bicycle-friendly. When our employees bike, great things happen: decreased carbon foot print, reduced heath care costs, connected to community, a fun and healthy work culture.
