The Bike East Dallas discount program is officially launching! Taking inspiration from the Local Discount program by Bike Friendly Oak Cliff, I’m offering free stickers and a website listing to any business that provides a bicycle discount. This is a simple and positive way to encourage folks to choose a bike to visit their local businesses. Our slogan is simple: ride your bike, support local, save money!
Cultivar Coffee on Peavy Road is the first local business to be listed on the Bike East Dallas website. When Jonathan Meadows, co-owner of Cultivar, saw on my Facebook that I planned on launching this program, he quickly asked for the first sticker. I’ve long been a supporter and fan of Cultivar, so I was very proud to deliver that first sticker this weekend.
Clayton Darnell of Fixed Touring has been a great encouragement to get this program launched. After a few brief conversations with Jonathan Braddick of BFOC, Clayton and I realized it wouldn’t be that hard to spread some Bike Love in East Dallas. Clayton is going to be helping me visit local shops and ask for discounts. We’ll be updating the website as we go.
If you know of any local businesses in the White Rock / Lakewood / East Dallas / Deep Ellum area that will offer discounts to bicycling patrons, give me a shout at firstname.lastname@example.org.
To use the discount, simply ride your bike to the listed businesses and ask for the discount!
