This Election Day: Free Bike Rides, Free Flat Fixes

Philadelphia’s bicycling community wants to make it as easy as possible for you to vote on Tuesday—and they’re offering free rides and free flat fixes for voters in Philadelphia!

On November 5th and 6th Indego Bike Share is hosting a “Pedal to the Polls” event, and will offer free day passes for anyone who wants them. To get the free day pass, log onto RideIndego.com and purchase a day pass with the promo code RIDE2VOTE.

Questions or concerns? You can reach their customer service team at 844-446-3346!

Now, let’s say you’ve got your own bike. Let’s say you’re riding on Tuesday, to or from your voting plade, and you get a flat. What to do? Get it fixed, of course. And if you’re near Trophy Bikes in Northern Liberties, Fairmount Bikes in Fairmount, or CyclesPHL in North Philadelphia, you can get it fixed for free!

These bike shops are offering free flat-fixes for all registered voters on November 6th, which is a really great perk, and a great way for community bike shops to empower residents of their neighborhoods, and all their current and future customers.

Trophy Bikes, who got the “free flats” thing started, even made this template for other bike shops who want to offer free flat fixes on Tuesday. So, if you own a bike shop and want to get on board, use this template – and let us know so we can update this blog post!

Email randy@bicyclecoalition.org or tweet at us (@bcgp) to let us know if your bike shop is participating in Free Flat Fix Election Day.

Happy voting, everybody.
