Yesterday, Bill Nesper and I rode our bikes down the Mount Vernon Trail to congratulate BikeArlington for their stand-out performance as a first place finisher in the “Micro Business” category of the 2012 National Bike Challenge.
It was a gorgeous day out on the trail, a fitting place to honor the riders who tallied 7,584 miles by bike over the three months of the Challenge this summer. With fewer than five employees (the definition of a “micro-business”), that mileage was no small feat!
We chatted with them about the 2013 Challenge, and how they plan to get more local businesses involved in the fun. We’ll see if anyone can catch up to this stellar workplace in 2013!
