In June, Cycle 9, along with the other bike shops in Chapel Hill and Carrboro, won an award for working together to promote bicycle transportation as an alternative to cars. The award reads:
Go Chapel Hill Commute Challenger Award
Chapel Hill & Carrboro Bike Shops
The Town of Chapel Hill recognizes all of the Chapel Hill & Carrboro Bicycle Shops for outstanding participation in Bike to Work Week events. Rarely do competing businesses put aside their own bottom lines for the bigger cause. Yet, all five of the Chapel Hill – Carrboro hotspot bicycle shops joined together to promote cycling in our area. Throughout Bike to Work Week they offered discounts, ran special promotions, offered free inspections and conducted Bike on Bus workshops. Representatives from all five shops are currently working with the Town of Chapel Hill to develop a more intense promotional campaign for the coming year! Hats off to The Clean Machine, Cycle 9, Performance Bike, Back Alley Bikes and the Bicycle Chain for your teamwork for the greater good!
Just goes to show what a great bicycle town we live in! Keep up the good work.
