MACOG named a Bronze Bicycle Friendly Business
SOUTH BEND — The League of American Bicyclists has recognized MACOG with a Bronze Bicycle Friendly Business award, earning it a place alongside 1,366 businesses across the country contributing to the movement to build a more bicycle friendly America, according to a news release from MACOG.
“When places make it easier for people to choose to bike, they are building safer, stronger, and better-connected communities. The League of American Bicyclists is thrilled when organizations like MACOG join us in this movement to build a more Bicycle Friendly America. When more people are biking to work or shop, life is better for everyone,” said Executive Director Bill Nesper.
MACOG’s statement said the regional planning agency encourages bicycling as an easy option for transportation and encourages more ridership in the region; most recently by providing 58 bicycle racks to communities this past summer.
MACOG Executive Director, James Turnwald, said, “Being designated as a Bicycle Friendly Business is a great accomplishment for MACOG. We plan to use our designation and experience with the process to help other businesses around the region apply and receive their own designation.”
