Thrifty Thursday: How to Save on Shopping When You Bike

Right in time for April’s 30 Days of Biking: BicycleBenefits.org offers this $5 sticker which gets you discounts at different places across the nation!

Just bring your stickered bike helmet in when you arrive on two wheels, and not only will you save marginal cost on gas and car maintenance, but literally get a discount when, say, buying a cup of coffee. If your coffee is ridiculously expensive at $5, getting 5 cups of coffee already breaks even for buying the sticker.

Top: my helmet with the sticker. Bottom: next time you see this sign at a store, buy it!

Note: they did not pay me to say this, just thought of it as I was finally buying a sticker after seeing it the 100th time at a local Seattle coffee shop.

..and now that you’ve bothered to read to the end of this, I give you: 50 Reasons Minneapolis is the BIke Capital of America. Sorry Seattle, this video by gearjunkie.com was too smooth not to embed.
