Ride a Bike to Trader Joe’s for Free Home Delivery in Bixby Knolls
2012-01-26 · By Editor
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!”
