Now here’s a business that really “gets it”.
As we highlighted in, Why Bicyclists Are Better Customers Than Drivers, “If you build it, they will come…and spend – oh wait – no building required.“, one business in Huntington Beach sure stepped up to the plate.
Pedego (at 301 5th street), offers secured bike parking at their establishment Tuesdays from 5 pm to 9 pm and weekends from 10 am to 6 pm. The parking will be available through Labor Day.
How enticing is this scene?
We salute and thank Pedego for their great support in meeting local cycling infrastructure needs and concerns of cyclists in Huntington Beach by providing this “velo-valet” service. The picture is also a great illustration of catering to the purchasing power of cyclists by reallocating resources (parking spaces for cars) to customers of the two wheeled variety. Well Done!
As far as we know, it is the only business in the county (so far) that offers such an inviting amenity.
If there are others, we’d love to hear about them.
