Business Buys Bikes For Commuting Workers

A brewery in Ashland, Oregon decided that the best way to incentivize employees to commute differently was to buy them bikes. A 15-minute on-street parking space was removed and replaced with a large bicycle rack to accommodate the bicycles.

"The bikes will reduce the restaurant's carbon footprint by getting workers out of cars; enhance workers' health and fitness; and free up parking spaces for tourist-oriented Ashland.

'The employees went crazy over it, a real buzz in the air,' Alex Amarotico said. 'They will come to work more energized. It's great for morale. I think it will catch on (with other businesses). I hope so.'"
