Biking is an important part of the City of Salisbury as it promotes healthy transportation, while limiting the amount of gas emissions into the atmosphere. The city encourages alternative methods of transportation in order to aid in the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, which would ultimately improve the quality of life in this area. It is a great honor for Salisbury to be considered a Bike Friendly Community and we would like to extend the offer to you to become a part as well! To be recognized as a Bike Friendly Merchant, you automatically become more appealing to customers, as you are helping to reduce your carbon footprint by promoting clean transportation. If this is something that interests you, please follow the next few steps! First, we would like to ensure that there is a place for bikers to park their bikes either in or outside of your store. This could mean a simple bike rack on your premises, or you could allow for bikes to come inside. Bike racks are inexpensive and you’d be surprised how appealing it is to have one available! Second, you would have to offer some type of incentive for riding a bike to your business! This could be anything from a discount to a free item, it’s up to! This really helps to promote biking throughout the city, while also increasing your business! Last, just let us know that you’re interested and meet the requirements and we can start advertising that you’ve joined the movement! It’s an exciting effort to be a part of and we hope that you consider joining!
