Retro City Cycles named a Gold Bicycle Friendly Business by the League of American Bicyclists

Today, the League of American Bicyclists recognized Retro City Cycles with a gold Bicycle Friendly Business (BFB) award, earning it a place alongside more than 1,400 businesses across the country contributing to the movement to build a more Bicycle Friendly America for everyone.


“We are excited to announce these new and renewing Bicycle Friendly Businesses, employers at the forefront of a growing movement for healthier, stronger, and better-connected communities across the nation,” said Bill Nesper, executive director of the League of American Bicyclists. “Ensuring more people – whether employees, customers, or members of the community – can safely choose to bike is part of the solution to many challenges we face both locally and globally, and we’re proud to see businesses like Retro City Cycles investing in opportunities that make a difference.”


Retro City Cycles joins a total of 1,451 current BFBs nationwide, including everything from government agencies, Fortune 500 companies, museums, hospitality establishments, bike shops, and other employers, all united in a commitment to transform American workplaces to be more welcoming to both customers and employees who bike. The Bicycle Friendly Business award recognizes an organization’s contributions in shifting up and accelerating the movement to build a Bicycle Friendly America for everyone.


“When businesses demonstrate leadership by joining our movement for better bicycling, the return on investment is clear for both businesses and the community at large — from employee retention and cost-savings on healthcare to fostering a greener environment and getting more investments in the local economy,” said Nesper. "Retro City Cycles and businesses like it recognize this and are putting in the work to make bicycling a real transportation and recreation option for all.”


"We opened our business in 2007, and have always encouraged our friends, neighbors and customers to consider using their bicycle as transportation. In our Ivanhoe Village neighborhood, and nearby College Park and Downtown Orlando, riding a bicycle is many times faster and easier than driving a car! We have worked closely with the City of Orlando to install more bicycle racks for safe bicycle parking, and celebrate new bicycle trails as they are planned and built," says Jessica Kinnee, owner/founder of Retro City Cycles.


As part of the BFB network, Retro City cycles will have access to a variety of tools and technical assistance from the League to become even more welcoming to people who bike. When employees bike, great things happen: a fun and healthy work culture, exercise, reduced healthcare costs, and a great way to connect with our customers to talk about the different places we ride!
