More downtown Winnipeg businesses are making it easier for cyclists to pop in and shop.
Through a partnership between the Downtown Winnipeg BIZ, Exchange District BIZ and the city, shopping by bike is becoming a convenience for many.
“Bike-friendly businesses can have a bike ring installed at their storefront to make it more attractive for cyclists to stop and shop, and they do. It’s just good business,” said Downtown Winnipeg BIZ CEO Stefano Grande.
Currently, there are 46 bike-friendly business locations in the core. The BIZ says they continue to look for further partners to hop on board.
The latest business to join is Grey Owl Coffee and Pub at 272 Main Street.
Businesses receive a window decal, cycling maps, one to two loaner locks and a tire pump.
City funding for the Bike Friendly Business program this year-to-date has been $9,000.
