Ride Your Bike, Get a Discount..

discounts

We here at BFOC sometimes sit around and try to think up clever ways to increase ridership in the community. The goal is to get average people and families out on their bicycles, which not only creates a vibrant street life, but helps our environment and health of our community. Also, business owners are often required to create more parking for their patrons which can be costly, and take away from their bottom lines.

After cyclists were given discounts on tickets for the Hunchback of Notre Dame movie at the Texas Theater last month, we decided that it may be smart to ask more area merchants if they would be willing to offer more specials to bicyclists.

So we asked around and received an overwhelmingly positive response. Look for our stickers with the BFOC logo on the doors or windows of your favorite Oak Cliff stops. There are still more merchants to talk to, so keep an eye out for updated lists from time to time.

We would like to ask that you try and park your bike within viewing shot of the merchant so that they can tell that you did indeed ride your bike in. We are running this program on the honor system because we know our community is awesome enough to not take advantage of the wonderful generosity of these businesses. With that being said, if we do happen to get a bad apple or two, they will likely pull out, so let’s all do our best to stay true to the goal!
