The BFB program recognizes businesses for their efforts to increase ridership and foster a positive bicycling culture in the workplace with a focus on Engineering, Education, Encouragement, Evaluation & Planning, and Equity & Inclusion.
Kitsbow and our Old Fort Ride House are positioned a stone’s throw away from the trails and public land of Pisgah National Forest.
Our CEO, David Billstrom, explained, “The award reflects the impact Kitsbow and the Old Fort Ride House are making in the community, the public lands, and the Western North Carolina region generally. Community participation in the survey was fantastic!"
David also adds: "We are also humbled to be included in such a forward-thinking collection of bicycle advocates, joining other businesses that have worked for years and decades to enable, support, and promote bicycle use. For example, Liberty Bicycles and New Belgium Brewing, both in nearby Asheville, earned Platinum status long before Kitsbow."
