Want 20% off your hamburger for riding your bike? A free drink for locking up to a tree instead of taking up a parking space? Bicyclists may soon be able to get deals and discounts like these as Provo begins to take part in the national Bicycle Benefits program.
The Daily Herald reports:
“Zac Whitmore — who leads Provo Bicycle Committee and the Provo Bicycle Collective — said he and other bicyclists are trying to spread information about the program to both Provo residents and local businesses. He said Provo cyclists are hoping to have the program operating in the city by spring and are talking to an array of local restaurants and other businesses about participation.
Whitmore explained that participating businesses obtain stickers from the Bicycle Benefits website, then sell them to cyclists, usually for $5. The result is a symbiotic relationship that benefits both customers who receive discounts, as well as business owners.”
The stickers aren’t available yet. But, the Bike Committee is working on selling the idea to local shops and restaurants. Keep watching the blog for updates.
