Buying the touring bicycles that my husband and I just bought was one of the smartest investments that we have made in years. We have been taking them to work and it has really shown the employees that work at our company that we are serious about doing our part to save the environment and become a greener company.
We have been working to promote green living at work and at home and the fact that we were driving gas guzzling automobiles to work each day when we only live a few blocks from the office did not look very good. Since we bought the bikes, we have been riding them to work each day on the days that the weather allowed us to do so.
It has made quite an impact on several of the employees. Many of them have started riding bikes to work. We have provided a special bike rack for our employees so they can lock up their bikes right alongside the building.
