This year, we are rolling out a Bike Benefits Program that will run from May 1st to September 30th. We hope to encourage people to bike regularly from Bike Month in May through goNewHavengo’s yearly alternative transportation contest in September. We want everyone to bike around New Haven more, so we’ve partnered with local businesses to reward you when you do!
why bike benefits?
Bikes = Business. Studies show that increased bicycling bolsters business districts, and that bicyclists spend more at their local businesses on a monthly basis than people who drive. When people bike to businesses, everybody wins.
How it works
- Buy a Bike Benefits sticker for your helmet at a New Haven Bike Month event or other locations in town (exact locations TBD). Funds will support Bike Month and goNewHavengo’s sustainable transportation work.
- Bike to one of our business partners from May 1st through September 30th and receive a deal/discount when you present your stickered helmet.
- Enjoy your purchase knowing that you not only contributed to making New Haven a more bike friendly space, but you also exercised, reduced your environmental footprint by not driving, and supported New Haven businesses.
