We have launched a new cyclist loyalty scheme called ‘Pedal Perks’ in East Belfast to encourage more people to cycle to local shops and cafes in the area and are calling on all business owners to join the scheme.
Arrive by bike at cafés and retailers near the Comber Greenway which display the Pedal Perks logo and ask what the reward is. For example, it could be a discount or an extra stamp on a loyalty card.
This is part of the CHIPS Project funded by Interreg North-West Europe. Sustrans is keen to expand Pedal Perks beyond East Belfast, contact us if you want to find out more.
“ While we have plenty of room for parking at Bell's Junction, our reliance on the car is becoming unsustainable, so we should do anything we can do to support the local cyclist. ”
