Bike Friendly Business Program

Four steps to becoming a Bike Friendly Business
  1. Fill out our online BFB application, which can be accessed here:
    The deadline for the next round of BFB is 30 April 2017.
  2. The CBC will review applications and visit applying businesses to further assess their bike-friendliness.
  3. The CBC will notify applying businesses of their BFB status in Spring 2017. We will announce BFB awardees during the Carrboro Open Streets event.
  4. Within two weeks of notification, the CBC will provide a tailored action plan, including a list of cost-effective solutions; a bike-related business profile on our website; and a “Bike Friendly Business” window decal.
