The League of American Bicyclists, a national bicycling and advocacy organization of nearly 20,000 members, has recognized SAP with a prestigious gold-level Bicycle Friendly Business (BFB) certification.
With the announcement of 64 new and renewing BFBs across the country, SAP joins a growing list of 1,250 local businesses, government agencies, and Fortune 500 companies leading the way in transforming transportation, health, and wellness for the betterment of U.S. workers and local communities.
“Business owners and workers across the country are looking for simple, straightforward ways to build their companies, do right by their workers and customers, and contribute positively to their local communities,” says Executive Director Bill Nesper of the League of American Bicyclists. “Boosting participation in bicycling achieves all of that and more, and BFBs such as SAP are wonderful models of that success. We congratulate this latest class of business leaders for recognizing that one of the oldest and easiest forms of transportation still generates significant economic and societal rewards today.”
BFB requirements identify incentives, programming, and amenities proven to enable and inspire more people to ride bikes. Among those offered by SAP are onsite gym facilities for pre and post-ride needs, secured bicycle parking at local offices, established SAP Cycling Club groups for employees to join, and paid sponsorship of cycling events, charities, and teams.
As a result of these efforts, SAP is able to attract and retain the best and brightest, create a culture of wellness, foster a sense of community in the workplace, and help reduce our environmental footprint.
