Getting to work and back is never better than when you work for one of the 28 bicycle friendly businesses in Texas! With this week’s announcement of new bicycle-friendly businesses from the League of American Bicyclists, even more Texas businesses are taking the pledge to make life a bit easier for those who commute by bike. Congratulations to the newest Texas businesses on the list:
Entering the list at GOLD: longtime BikeTexas partner and good friends, Capital Metro. In addition to being the first transit system in Texas to welcome bikes aboard, they’re our hometown transportation authority.
And at SILVER: San Antonio River Authority, who among many other things are also responsible for some of the parks we love visiting in San Antonio.
We couldn’t be prouder of these two businesses entering the list in such stellar fashion! Althogether, the 28 Texas businesses on the list represent 10 cities and 142,759 Texas employees. Keep up the great work, Texas businesses!
