The League of American Bicyclists has designated the Utah County Health Department as a Bronze-level Â Bicycle FriendlyÂ Business. The application is very well put together and easy to fill out. TheÂ employees at the League of American Bicyclist were very helpful. Per my request they sent meÂ an example of another county health office application from a previous year. The applicationÂ example was helpful when filling out the Â application. The LeagueÂ employees are more than willing to answer my questions.
When we were named a BFB, the League provided us with feedback that isÂ very detailed and specific to our organization. The Health Department is proud to be Provo’s second BFB, and our goal isÂ become a Silver-level BFB within the next four years.
Being a bicycle friendly business means that we are workingÂ toward a more welcoming atmosphere for bicycling employees, customers and other residents of Provo.Â It also means helping our communities be safer, happier, healthier and more sustainableÂ through bicycling.
