The Northside Leadership Conference and its bike/ped advocacy committee, Walk Ride Northside, kicked off the summer by introducing the "We Like Bikes!" - Northside Bike Friendly Business Program. The program aims to raise ridership in the Northside, increase the bicycle safety and friendliness of the Northside, and promote Northside businesses.
We Like Bikes! business partners act as safe havens for riders by providing various repair tools (such as tire pumps, tire levers, chain tools, screwdriver/wrench multi-tools, and patch kits) for them to utilize. Businesses also offer free water and restroom access to riders.
Funding for the program was provided by One Northside, and Northside shop Bear Dog Bicycles assisted with coordinating the repair tool kits.
Look for the We Like Bikes! decal in the windows of participating businesses.
