Outdoor gear retailer Mountain Gear recognized for supporting cycling

For the third year in a row, Spokane outdoor retailer Mountain Gear has won a Silver Award for being a bike-friendly business by the League of American Bicyclists.

Showing up to work in spandex and lycra from a commute or after a morning ride up Mount Spokane isn’t just tolerated, it’s encouraged.  
“We’re very excited to be leading the growing bike culture here in the Spokane area,”  Mountain Gear President Paul Fish said in a release.
The company actively encourages the benefits — healthwise and economically — of biking. It offers showers and indoor bike parking and offers rewards for those workers who bike to work and participate in local bike advocacy.
Employees are encouraged to buy bikes hrough Mountain Gear’s employee bike purchase program. Coordinated with Two Wheel Transit in Spokane, the program has helped outfit over 60 employees and employee family members with new bikes.
