Bike-friendly employers

Does your company encourage you to ride your bike to work? Do they provide covered, secure bike parking or a changing room and/or shower? While many companies provide subsidies to employees who drive, mostly in the form of a free parking space, they could also do the same for bicyclists.

Some forward-thinking employers do just that. They know that bicycling is an enviornment-friendly, healthy way to get to work. Some of the incentives include a lump sum to purchase a bicycle, participation in ride sharing services, and dedicated bike parking areas:
In this eco-aware age, employers are increasingly rewarding staffers who leave their cars at home and pedal to work. It usually takes a nudge from an employee or two, “a squeaky wheel to get the process going,” says Elizabeth Preston, spokeswoman for the League of American Bicyclists. Here, during national Bike to Work month, a look at a half-dozen bike-friendly companies.
If your company has similar incentives, let us know. We'll compile a list and will suggest that this efforts be rewarded, possibly at next year's Bike to Work Day event.
