Ripon an Honorable Mention among Bicycle-Friendly Businesses

The League of American Bicyclists recently awarded Ripon with an Honorable Mention in its Fall 2009 list of Bicycle Friendly Businesses.

The League of American Bicyclists recognizes the businesses that promote bicycling for transportation, recreation, exercise and sport. These businesses also must practice social responsibility by including bicycling in the business culture, promoting the health of each person and the environment. When awarding these businesses specifically, they evaluate them in the four categories of encouragement, education, engineering and evaluation.

In response to this award, David Joyce, president of Ripon College, said, “Ripon’s Velorution Project for students and the recent extension of that program to faculty and staff is part of a broad effort to rejuvenate use of the bicycle as a fundamental form of transportation and recreation. We’re excited and proud to learn that our dedication to this effort has captured the attention of the American cycling community.”
