Bicycle Benefits Program

Postby bigdumbgirl » Fri May 22, 2009 8:31 am

There's a program called Bicycle Benefits at Community Pharmacy so I bought a little sticker for $5 to put on my bicycle helmet and now I get a 10% discount there when I bike downtown and show them my helmet. Apparently there are other business that offer discounts to BB members, so I want to make a list. Anyone know any other places in Madison that offer Bicycle Benefits?

Cafe Soleil gives a discount on coffee.

I'm not sure what's going on with this program - their website is mostly empty and there's not much information out there about who honors these. I wonder if the program is dead but some businesses still honor the stickers?

The guy who set it up is on the road, setting it up in cities all over the country. Since it's a one man operation, he doesn't have time to update his website (it was a more thorough site until it got hacked a few months ago and he lost all the data). I had originally emailed him requesting a list of participating businesses and he said he was working on it. In the meantime, I just thought I'd see if we forons could form a list!

Let's see, Brocach, Froth House, and Company of Thieves come to mind.

I see those signs all over, but since I almost always lock my helmet to my bike, and switch helmets fairly frequently, I've never gotten around to joining the program.

I picked up a little key fob/luggage tag thing at Dorn's & put my BB sticker inside, then hung it from my shoulder bag. Espresso Royale & Ian's pizza both honor Bicycle Benefits.
