Bicycle Benefits in Salisbury!

BBListWe’ve been hearing all this buzz about “Bicycle Benefits.” So, what is it?

Well, we’ll tell you! Bicycle Benefits is a program setup so that both bicycle advocates and local businesses can promote bicycling as a form of transportation as well as economic activity in your community.

Bicycle friendly businesses who decide to participate enroll in the program. They agree to reward bicyclists, for choosing to use bicycles instead of cars, with a special offer from their business. This could be a discounted service, a free refill on beer or coffee or half price dessert at your favorite restaurant. All you have to do is show up at the business, on your bike, and show them the $5 helmet sticker you purchased at a participating business. That’s it! One or two visits to any participating business, and the sticker pays for itself. This program is nationwide and your sticker is honored in thousands of businesses all over the United States of America! Check the bicyclebenefits.org for participating businesses in your area.bicyclebene

The program is still new so if some businesses in your community haven’t gotten the memo, don’t worry! The sticker is only $5. Get one, put it on your helmet then visit your favorite businesses in your community. Show them your sticker and ask if they’ve thought about becoming a Bicycle Benefits business partner and tell them you like to support participating businesses. The program is self-sustaining and just too much of a good thing for anyone to refuse.
