Today is the League of American Bicyclists’ national Bike to Work Day and this morning, Beaumont Health System and Oakland County unveiled a new bicycle-friendly, commuter map of southeastern Oakland County.
L. Brooks Patterson, Oakland County Executive, and Gene Michalski, Beaumont President and CEO, were on-hand to unveil the new map and greet some of the Beaumont employees commuting in to work via bicycle.
Beaumont, Royal Oak was also recently designated a 2013 Bicycle Friendly Business by the League of American Bicyclists.
Explains Matthew Faraday, avid cyclist and Beaumont nurse, who helped create the new Oakland County bike map, “We’re honored to win this national award. It recognizes a visionary group of more than 500 businesses, including Microsoft, General Mills, Patagonia and Steelcase. Bicycling is another great way to raise the environmental consciousness of our employees and area residents.”
