Bicycle Friendly Business Awards deadline approaches
  
The deadline to submit nominations for the 2005 Bicycle Friendly Business
Awards (BFBA) is quickly approaching. Individuals are encouraged to nominate
their own, or any, business/organization for one of this year's BFBAs. The
deadline to submit a nomination is Friday, September 9 at 5 p.m. A special
ceremony to present the awards will take place on Thursday, October 6 in the
Rotunda of City Hall at 6 p.m.

The following seven awards will be presented at the ceremony:

Along with the BFBAs, this year the City will launch the Bicycle-Friendly
Recognition Program. Businesses that agree to meet certain criteria for being
bicycle-friendly will be recognized by the City, given a decal to display in
their window and sign a three-year pledge to be bike-friendly.
