Bicycle Benefits commuter discount program has rolled into Asheville to offer deals to those on two wheels. This year-round program promotes cycling and boosts local business by offering discounts and rewards to cyclists who display their sporty Bicycle Benefit helmet sticker at participating establishments.
Bicycle Benefits, which began in Saratoga Springs, New York is the first program to monetarily reward cyclists for their commitment to cleaner air, fewer traffic jams, better personal health, and less dependence on foreign oil.
Asheville on Bikes is partnering with Bicycle Benefits to give people incentives for riding their bicycles. The helmet sticker is your ticket to discounts and rewards city-wide and can be purchased for $5 at all locations which have signed on in Asheville.
The Hop West, The Dripolator and French Broad Chocolate Lounge are offering FREE giveaways to kick off the new program and Bike Month
