Are you ready for Car Free Friday?car-free-fridays-long-beach

On Friday, April 2, the community is invited to again leave their car in the garage and feel the wind in their hair. Ride your bike on Car Free Friday and join the car-free community for discounts at Lunch Breaks for Cyclists.

In addition to the clean-living karma of a greener commute, an added benefit of biking to work on Car-Free Fridays is taking advantage of “lunch break” discounts. More than 20 eateries in Long Beach are offering discounts of up to 20% for cyclists between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.

Cyclists need only mention the promotion and show proof of ridership – helmet or bicycle lock key – to take advantage of the discounts. The following restauarants are offering Car-free Friday discounts:

The City of Long Beach launched Car-Free Fridays this summer to encourage community members to ride a bicycle or use another form of alternative transportation the first Friday of every month. The campaign is designed to promote active, green living in Long Beach.

Car-free Fridays is working to get more people to leave their cars at home and start realizing the global and personal benefits of riding a bicycle or using another form of alternate transportation. Choosing to commute by bicycle, even on occasion, can have immediate positive health and environmental results.

Give your car a break and bike to work on any designated Car-Free Friday to get a break of your own — a price break from one of your favorite restaurants. For more information, visit www.bikelongbeach.org, e-mail charles.gandy@longbeach.gov or call 562.570.6679.
