Colin Neill, CEO Hospitality Ulster, Pamela Grove-White from Sustrans and Robert Bell, owner of S.D. Bells cafe in east Belfast launching Pedal Perks cycling loyalty scheme.
Cyclists simply arrive by bike at cafés and retailers near the Comber Greenway who 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 and is calling on all business owners to join the scheme. Contact us if you want to find out more.
