December 20 - WHA school was chosen as a bike friendly business!
As part of the City of Walker trying to become a Bike Friendly Community, our school and numerous other local businesses filled out a application to intentionally do better to serve our customers, (our students) who ride bike to school and our employees who ride bike to work.

The League of American Bicyclists is honoring 82 businesses in 30 states with its prestigious Bicycle Friendly Business (BFB) designation. This award recognizes companies for their efforts to promote and support active, healthy transportation options for their employees, customers, and guests.

In its 10 years of designating Bicycle Friendly Businesses, the League has evaluated over 2,000 companies and currently recognizes a total of 1,314 active Bicycle Friendly Businesses at the Bronze, Silver, Gold, or Platinum award levels in all 50 states and Washington, D.C. Today’s award announcement also includes five companies that are receiving Honorable Mention recognition.

Funded through a partnership of the League of American Bicyclists and Dero Bike Racks, the Bicycle Friendly Business program is one of four core elements of a larger campaign to create a Bicycle Friendly America for everyone. The League and its 17,000 members also support and encourage bicyclists’ rights and safety via their Bicycle Friendly Community, Bicycle Friendly State and Bicycle Friendly University programs. Learn more atwww.bikeleague.org/BFA.

The League of American Bicyclists leads a national movement to create a Bicycle Friendly America for everyone. As such, the organization is committed to listening and learning, defining standards and sharing best practices to engage diverse communities and build a powerful, unified voice for change.
