League of American Bicyclists Bicycle Friendly Business
UPDATE (October 27, 2014) -- Between LAB's handling of the Cherokee Schill case (you can read LAB President Andy Clarke's official statement here but this pretty much sums it up: "We have chosen not to actively support Cherokee Schill's case") and their insistence that infrastructure is the end-all to safely riding a bicycle, That's Rentertainment will not be re-applying for the League's Bicycle Friendly Business. Needless to say, we will continue to be friendy to cyclists, maintain the IttyBittyBikeShop and remain members of and support Champaign County Bikes, the League of Illinois Bicyclists and the various local cycling groups... just not LAB.
In April 2012, the League of American Bicyclists (LAB) designated That's Rentertainment as a Bronze Bicycle Friendly Business. Thank you to everyone who voted and put in a kind word for us during the process. We are one of 67 businesses nationwide to receive this designation during this cycle -- and the only video store on the list. As a life-long resident and a cyclist for almost as long, I am honored to have received this award and plan to continue doing all I can to promote safe commuting and recreational bicycling in the Campustown and Urbana-Champaign area.
From the LAB web site: "A Bicycle Friendly Business (BFB) is a corporation, organization, association, government agency, or non-profit that actively promotes bicycling for transportation, recreation, exercise, and sport. A BFB practices social responsibility by weaving bicycling into the business culture and gives employees the opportunity to be active stewards of their personal and environmental health through bicycling."
Some of the things we do:
The Itty Bitty Bike Shop: We opened a tiny (4 square feet) bike shop in That's Renterainment to supply commuters with the very basics (tubes, lights, reflectors, etc)... and a pump. Profits go to local bicycle groups.
• We support local bicycle organizations: I am a member of the Prairie Cycle Club and Champaign County Bikes and donate to The Bike Project and The Illini 4000 for Cancer.
• We support state and national bicycling organizations: I am a member of both the League of Illinois Bicyclists (LIB) and the League of American Bicyclists (LAB).
• We created and maintain the UC Bike Ride web page which includes lots of bicycling information, links, maps, etc for noth commuters and area-wide cycling tourists.
• We set up the BikeRide! Google group as a way to facilitate longer distance bicycle rides in the Urbana-Champaign area.
• We set up the Bicycle Friendly UIUC blog to identify and document problematic bicycle infrastructure on the University of Illinois campus.
• We stock a wide array of videos related to cycling.
