“The most positive outcome of TGH's support for bicycling is the positive impact it's had on the community-wide advancement of bike culture and multimodal travel overall. The hospital has engaged with all local bicycle stakeholders and safety advocates since first becoming BFB certified, including staff members becoming board members of local biking organizations." —Lana Pacheco, manager of parking, transportation and valet services, Tampa General Hospital (Gold)
“Planning for bicycle friendliness is new for our business. The BFB application provides many good ideas for upping our game that we'll be exploring in the coming months.”
—Kimberely Schwoerer, co-owner, Oasis Café (Bronze)
“I applied to the Bicycle Friendly Business program in order to get more resources for how we can be better. We have so much potential to check every single box on the application but it has been difficult to find the resources (both financial and knowledge-based) to help us get there.”
—Jay Snowdon, business operations coordinator, Conservation Legacy (Bronze)
