NEW! Bicycle Benefits Program
Calling all local businesses!
We are partnering with Bicycle Benefits, a program that offers discounts and benefits to customers who bike to participating shops.
Here’s how it works:
Businesses become Bicycle Benefit members through FNT and sell a bike helmet sticker to cyclists for $5 each.
Businesses will be listed on the Bicycle Benefits website as well as a shoutout from us.
Once cyclists buy the sticker, they are eligible for discounts or deals at participating businesses (BOGO, or 10% off etc). We’ll help with outreach to encourage cyclist participation in the program.
The cost of a starter kit is $25 and includes 10 stickers to sell to customers for $5 each, decals for your shop window and cash register and informational material.
We are pleased to offer the first 20 business participants the kits at no cost — just fill out this form and we will be in touch and drop off your kit to your location.

Thanks to Senator Edward J. Markey the Surface Transportation Reauthorization Act that recently passed out of a key Senate Committee includes $200 million in dedicated funding for connected active transportation networks and trails.
The inclusion of this funding is a huge win & we are proud to have a bicycling and pedestrian champion in Senator Markey who is consistently pushing for active transportation funding at home and in Washington, DC.
Please take a moment to contact Senator Markey’s office and thank him for his hard work on getting this amendment included in the bill and for his continued leadership on bike and pedestrian priorities.
