What are the advantages of participating as a Bike Saturdays business?

Promoting bicycling is a cost-effective strategy to improve a business’ bottom-line.  There is a proven “bike local, buy local connection” that increases greater awareness of businesses within the community when people are traveling on foot and by bike.

What exactly is Bike Saturdays?

Bike Saturdays is an incentive program to encourage Long Beach residents and visitors to travel by bike and to patronize local businesses.

All businesses have to do is sign up for the program online at: www.bikelongbeach.org/signupbikesaturdaybusinesses and put a special Bike Saturdays decal in their storefront which lets customers know they are participating in the program.  

Why should my business participate in Bike Saturdays?

  • FREE advertising for a limited time on news websites and area publications.
  • Bike Saturday businesses receive a free listing and map location on Bike Long Beach’s website for all bicyclists to see.
  • Attract more customers by fostering a safer & friendlier environment. More people on bikes means “more feet on the street,” creating a safer, more inviting area for people to shop and dine.

Create more parking for your driving customers. Bicyclists ease traffic and parking congestion, while reducing air pollution. This frees up parking spaces for customers who must drive.

  • Be an active part in being a solution to a healthier & happier community! Bike Saturdays helps people save money on services, parking, and gas. And, bicycling residents are healthier, decreasing the chance of heart disease, building muscle and stamina, and reducing stress.
