Adobe has had a reputation of supporting and promoting bicycling in Seattle for more than 17 years.  An internal bicycle club, called “Seabike,” informs employees about Adobe’s incentive programs for alternative commuting, pairs inexperience commuters with a bike buddy from their neighborhood, messages about upcoming bicycle events at Adobe and connects employees to bicycle advocacy organizations in the community. Each month, Seabike also nominates a Commuter of the Month, and the lucky winner receives the best spot in the secure bike cage to park in style all month long.

These initiatives along with Adobe’s annual Bike to Work Day efforts were recognized as Jeff M., a senior engineering manager for Acrobat.com, and the local Facilities team applied for and received Gold Level Certification from the BizCycle Program. BizCycle certifies companies that actively implement bicycling initiatives and recognizes bike-friendly organizations in a best practice guide. “To me, this level of certification is just proof of what Adobe does for our site, local area cyclists and for me as an employee to support and promote cycling,” Jeff mentioned.

Congratulations, Adobe Seattle!
