Bicycle Friendly America

Did you know the State College-Centre Region is recognized nationally by the League of American Bicyclists as a Bicycle Friendly Community? CentreBike played a significant role in the community earning this status. Since our inception in 2000, CentreBike has been a voice for cyclists and a driving force in making bicycling safer in our community.


With CentreBike’s encouragement, Penn State earned a silver Bicycle Friendly University award and nine State College businesses have been recognized as a Bicycle Friendly Business:

  • Blue Mountain Quality Resources
  • Eddie’s Bicycles & Hockey Equipment
  • Freeze Thaw Cycles
  • KCF Technologies, Inc.
  • Millbrook Marsh Nature Center
  • State College Borough
  • The Bicycle Shop
  • Videon Central, Inc.
  • West Arete

If your company is interested in becoming a BFB, CentreBike is happy to assist – just ask! There are four application rounds a year, and the next one closes on June 15th.

The BFB program recognizes employers’ efforts to encourage a more bicycle-friendly atmosphere for employees and customers. The program honors innovative bicycle-friendly efforts, provides technical assistance and helps businesses foster a healthier workplace and become more socially and environmentally responsible. The BFB application is online at:
