Walk, bike, or bus is what the Allen County Bike and Pedestrian Task Force is encouraging Allen County residents to do and they are looking to area businesses to help in the effort. Becoming a bike friendly business is a good way to encourage your employees to become more active and healthier, which can benefit your business in the long run.
