Best New Amenity for Office Buildings? Free Bike Tune Ups

Keara Mehlert
Keara Mehlert September 24, 2015 0 Comments Keara Mehlert is the Property & Development Services Program Manager at Arlington Transportation Partners. She has been car-free and loving it for the past three years and has been biking 3.5 miles to work every day since October 2012.
ATP TAKEAWAY: Looking for an easy way to engage tenants and promote sustainable transportation options at your property? Consider offering free onsite bike tune ups to commuters who already bike to work or are thinking of switching to two wheels for their commute.

Three Ballston properties that are all ATP Champions, recently partnered with ATP and Revolution Cycles to provide free bike tune ups for employees in the buildings. This past month, Two Liberty Center, managed by Kodiak Realty Services, and JBG-managed 800 North Glebe and 950 North Glebe, offered employees full tune ups for their bikes free of charge.

The tune ups were provided by staff from Revolution Cycles and were offered at a discounted rate to properties if eight or more bikes participated. Nearly 40 employees signed up between the properties, and all of the buildings hope to have similar events in the spring in conjunction with events such as Earth Day, National Bike Month and Bike to Work Day. In addition to being current Gold Level Champions, 800 North Glebe and Two Liberty Center are also in the process of submitting applications to earn designation as a Bicycle Friendly Business.

Contact me to learn more about this program and other bike initiatives, such as Capital Bikeshare memberships or custom visitor bike racks. Make your building more bike friendly this coming year by providing an affordable and fun program for your tenants.
