Promoting bicycling is a valuable and cost-effective strategy to improve a business’ bottom line.
There is a proven “bike local, buy local connection” as most bike trips are shorter, slower and more likely to create greater awareness of a neighborhood’s surroundings. More people bicycling means there also are literally more “feet on the street,” making an area safer and friendlier and attracting more people and more customers! And by converting some of the area’s drivers to bicyclists, car parking opens up for driving customers. Bicycle Friendly Business Districts (BFBD’s) receive a listing and map location on the Bike Long Beach website, as well as additional exposure through the website’s Bike Saturdays discount program which offers bicyclists a discount or deal every Saturday at more than 150 businesses.

BFBD’s may post bicycle-related events on the Bike Long Beach events calendar and businesses may request a bike rack or bike corral by contacting the Public Works Department at bikelongbeach@longbeach.gov or by clinking on the bike rack request button at the bottom of this page.  Please be sure to indicate that you would like to have a bike rack in the message section of the reply form or e-mail.

Register your business today as a Bicycle Friendly Business and start promoting your business to the thousands of residents and visitors who travel by bike in Long Beach.
