The Bike Friendly Business Network #SEAbikebiz is made up of Seattle businesses that support people who arrive by bike. Join the network #SEAbikebiz and we will promote all that you do! Check out the best practices page for ideas of what other Bike Friendly Businesses are doing to support cycling.
Studies in cities across the US and Canada show that customers who arrive to your business by foot or by bike visit more frequently and spend more money than those who arrive by car. Cities have proven that cycling supports a thriving business network on a neighborhood scale. After the completion of the 9th Ave protected bike lane in NYC, local businesses saw a 49% increase in retail sales.
Recent Census data revealed that new workers are significantly less likely to drive to work. Supporting active transportation fosters camaraderie in your workplace and community, while increasing employee morale and quality of life.
Through shared values and best practices Seattle Bike Friendly Businesses stand to gain loyal customers, strengthen their community and decrease traffic congestion for all.
