Boulder Bicycle Friendly Businesses

Bike Friendly Businesses Boulder ColoradoCommunity Cycles and GO Boulder announce the launch of the Boulder Bicycle Friendly Business Program, which recognizes the Boulder businesses that make bicycle commuting an attractive and feasible option for employees and visitors.

Businesses receive a score out of 100 total points, and are then divided into four score levels- bronze, silver , gold and platinum. Scoring is based on categories such as bike parking and other amenities, programs and policies related to biking, and community involvement.
Businesses are awarded the Bike Friendly Distinction for a one-year period and encouraged to re-apply each year to get an updated designation .
Those honored with this distinction receive a certificate and a Boulder Bike Friendly Business sticker for the year in which the distinction was awarded. Winning businesses will be featured on the Community Cycles and GO Boulder websites and e-newsletters.

Honored businesses will be announced at least twice a year – Winter Bike to Work Day and Walk and Bike Month in June – and more often if necessary. Businesses can apply year-round.
