“The business community’s investment in bicycling is playing a central role in making the country a safer, happier, and more sustainable place to live and work,” said Amelia Neptune, League Bicycle Friendly Business Program Manager. “We applaud this new round of businesses, including Superior Linen Service, for leading the charge in creating a bicycle-friendly America for everyone.”
From sponsoring a bike club to supporting various cycling events, Superior Linen Service has created a company culture that embraces the health and fitness lifestyle and a mantra of “just get off the couch”. “When our employees bike, great things happen: We continue to decrease our carbon footprint, we can provide reduced health care costs, we connect to our community, and we have a more fun and healthy work culture.” - Superior Linen Service President, Douglas Waldman
