    Good Biking Corporate Citizens

    Tim Horton's (a Canadian tradition, expanding into the U.S., now part of Wendy's), was the major sponsor of the Canadian Road National Champioships in June. This event was held in Hamilton Ontario as a warm up for the World Championships being held in October.
    They also provide an "Earn a Bike" program for kids - kids spend a certain number of hours helping with cleanup of vacant lots, etc, and earn a bike - details from their website:

    “Earn A Bike” Program

    The Tim Hortons "Earn A Bike" program is a community-oriented sponsorship program where kids between 10 and 14 years of age team up with community partners to help clean up their local streets, parks and schools. Each participant completes 30 hours of community service and is rewarded with their very own Tim Hortons Minelli-Leader mountain bike and Bell helmet courtesy of their local Tim Hortons store owner. The children are selected from organizations such as Big Brothers and Big Sisters by their local police department who also co-ordinate the program and provide supervision while the kids are out doing their part to make their community a cleaner, brighter place to live.


    Sudbury, Ontario became a cleaner, brighter place to live
    thanks to the hard work and dedication of these kids

    The program’s philosophy evolves around teaching kids about teamwork, giving them job skills and building their self-esteem. The "Earn a Bike" program was initiated by the Hamilton-Wentworth Police Service in 1996. Tim Hortons became the title sponsor of the program two years later. Tim Hortons currently sponsors the "Earn a Bike" program in over 70 regions in Ontario from mid-May to June, with over 1,000 children receiving bikes and helmets in 2002.


    Are there any other good corporate bike ciitizens out there???
