OtterBox Celebrates Cycling Culture With Bike to Work Station

FORT COLLINS, CO--(Marketwire - Dec 8, 2011) - OtterBox, maker of premier protective solutions for mobile technology, will welcome a flurry of frigid cyclists at its new headquarters building in downtown Fort Collins, Colo. The locally owned company will host a breakfast station for the 2011 Winter Bike to Work Day on Dec. 14.

Along with proVelo and Mugs Coffee Lounge, OtterBox will cheer on commuters braving the unpredictable Colorado weather to support this annual event organized by the city of Fort Collins. Cyclists who swing by the west parking lot of the OtterBox facility at 209 S. Meldrum St. from 7 to 9:30 a.m. will be treated to breakfast, a special OtterBox gift (limited quantities), on-the-spot repairs from proVelo and coffee from Mugs. OtterBox is one of 17 breakfast stations welcoming cyclists throughout the city. A complete map and listing is available here.

"Being a member of the downtown business community, biking has really become a part of the OtterBox culture," said OtterBox Founder and CEO Curt Richardson. "We try to encourage our employees to bike to work whenever possible and are happy to support Bike to Work Day through this station."

OtterBox was recently named a Bicycle Friendly Business, receiving a Silver designation from the League of American Bicyclists. The designation is awarded to companies that have worked hard to increase bicycle friendliness in the workplace. At OtterBox, this work included the addition of an indoor bicycle locker room at its headquarters building, complete with repair and maintenance tools.

"We are happy to recognize OtterBox for their investment in bicycling as a vehicle for improved employee health, social responsibility and economic growth," said League of American Bicyclists President Andy Clarke. "Some of the most successful companies in the world are showing that investing in bicycling is not only good for health and sustainability but also the bottom line."
