Pedaler Society Grocery Delivery in Bixby Knolls

Pedaler Society uses a cargo bike to help cyclists bring groceries home safely.

Beginning January 28, 2012, and at no additional cost to the shopper, Pedaler Society will offer a grocery delivery service for residents residing within a one- mile radius of Trader Joe’s in Bixby Knolls. This service has been made possible by the Bike-Friendly Business District (BFBD) program in partnership with the Bixby Knolls Business Improvement Association. The BFBD program is made possible by the Department of Health and Human Services through the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health and the City of Long Beach.

The couriers (or “Flyers” as they are called within Pedaler Society) will provide a courteous and efficient method to get your groceries home after riding your bike to Trader Joe’s. Customers will benefit from a healthy bike ride to and from Trader Joe’s and a great conversation with your “Flyer” on the way home! 

Pedaler Society utilizes a cargo bike provided by the Bike Friendly Business Districts program to Bixby Knolls for local businesses to use when delivering products to local customers.

“Thanks to the leadership of the Bike-Friendly Business District program and Bixby Knolls Business Improvement Association, Long Beach Pedaler Society is now able to provide a bicycle friendly option for residents to shop for groceries.” says Dana Seagraves of Pedaler Society. “While outwardly this may seem like a small offering, it is yet another way that residents in the “most bike friendly city in the nation” can get on a bicycle and practice healthy living. Perhaps the most important aspect of this program is that it is yet another way that we can participate in our favorite type of business; the business of healthy community building. Join us!”

  1. Awesome… yet another example of how Long Beach is striving to become the most bike friendly city in the US. Watch out Portland, Davis and Minneapolis–here we come.

    Thanks to Blair Cohn in the Bixby Knolls Business District, April Economidies, who heads up the Bike Friendly Business District Program, the awesome crew at the Pedaler’s Society headed up by Joseph Bradly and Jesus Chavez and of course Trader Joe’s. What a great job everyone is doing to give people options for getting to restaurants, shops, to work and to play in Long Beach.
