Saving Green

This past weekend the Cambridge Antique Market had their annual Open House/Dealer Days Sale. We were there all three days (in our basement "shop") and much to our delight we were very busy, especially for a February weekend.

Monday a visitor came in and was wearing a bright green safety vest. On the back was some print Walk/Ride Days. Of course we “chatted” him up about the vest. And he introduced us to the Green Streets Initiative and told us a bit about this program. How it started with a small group of parents that decided they wanted to make the streets of Cambridge safer for their children to walk and bike to school. In March, 2006 Walk/Ride Days began in four Cambridge Schools. And it has spread to several other cities.

Visit their web site and check out this program. It’s a good deal that hopefully will continue to become a part of the big picture that helps push bikes a bit further into our commuting/living options.
We have decided to join this growing list of sponsors that will give you a reward for "Going Green". Come in during the last Friday of the Month, wearing green and/or let us know you are taking part in Walk/Ride Days and you get 10% off your purchase. It is not all about bicycle shops, mark your calendar for the last Friday of the month. Check their list of sponsors for what suits your needs for the day and get a reward for Going Green!

What a deal, you get to say Bike Me and Save!
Frugality with an attitude? Maybe…a little.

Ride more and save more green!
