Ypsilanti Bike-Friendly Business Program


The Ypsilanti Bicycle Friendly Business campaign is a way to promote active and healthy lifestyles for employees and customers in the Ypsilanti area. The campaign will honor corporations, organizations, associations, government agencies or non-profit groups located in Ypsilanti that actively promotes bicycling for transportation, recreation, exercise and sport. The Ypsilanti Bike Friendly Business campaign is supported by the Downtown Association of Ypsilanti and administered by the City of Ypsilanti Non-Motorized Advisory Committee.


Bike Friendly Businesses are helping to encourage biking as a form of transportation as well as recreation. Ypsilanti area business owners know that a growth in bicycling and the bicycling environment helps support a thriving network of small businesses on a neighborhood scale. By participating in the Ypsilanti Bike Friendly Business Campaign, cyclists and business owners are working together to create and encourage safe cycling and healthy business.
