On Bike to Shop Day, Aiden stopped by Green Apple Books for some summer reads and got a free tote bag.
Thanks to the many members and dozens of local shops that made San Francisco’s first-ever Bike to Shop Day a smashing success! Bike to Shop Day featured over 60 discount partners and 20 new businesses participating from every neighborhood in San Francisco. From cartoons to coffee to classic novels, Bike to Shop Day had you covered, no matter your interests.
Like Bike to Work Day, Bike to Shop Day was a one-day event that recognizes the growing number of people riding bikes to get to more places — including their local businesses. It’s inspired by Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition‘s event which was launched in 2014 and has gained national attention.
The fact is, people who bike are more likely to stop along their commutes and spend money. Bike to Shop Day is an opportunity to celebrate the special relationship between San Francisco’s local businesses and the people who pedal up daily to keep them thriving. We’ll be working with local merchants again next year to get you even more discounts for riding your bike to your favorite businesses (and some new ones too).
