WHOI Recognized as Bicycle Friendly Business

WOODS HOLE – The Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution has been recognized by the League of American Bicyclists for their efforts to promote cycling.

WHOI has received the organization’s Silver Bicycle Friendly Business Award, and is now among 1,367 other local businesses, government agencies, and Fortune 500 companies in what the League says is promoting a safer, happier, healthier, and more sustainable future for the community.

As one of the largest employers on Cape Cod, WHOI is encouraging bicycling partly as an easy, accessible option that helps reduce congestion on local roads and in parking-strapped Woods Hole Village.

Amenities such as a bicycle loan program, bicycle maintenance workshops, and an email forum for cyclists at the Institution serve to encourage more employees to bicycle to work and between campuses.

Moving forward, WHOI will continue to expand the resources to employees to encourage recreational and commuter bicycling. Just last week, the Institution’s Sustainability Task Force unveiled three new secure storage locations that provide cyclists secure, protected locations for bicycles and repair stations.
