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.

Let’s get folks on their bikes this spring!
