Orange Tractor Wines encouraging safe drinking and cycling

OT-racks-2 Orange Tractor Wines are one of the cycle friendly business on the Albany Go-Taste Trail [PDF].  Recently they installed bicycle racks for cyclists, racks that are shaped as bottles. How cool is that?

Albany businesses that meet the following criteria have judged themselves to be “bicycle friendly”:

  1. Allow cyclists to leave their car at the premises while cycling (optional…please check with business first).
  2. Welcoming to cyclists;
  3. Happy for cyclists to wear cycling attire whilst on the premises;
  4. Provide free access to water or a tap to refill bottles;
  5. Provide an identifiable place to lock your bicycle either on-site or (if the business is in the CBD) within 100m of the premise;
  6. Allow cyclists to use their toilets (optional…please check with business first)

Criteria specific to accommodation:

  1. Provide access to basic equipment for bicycle repair & maintenance ;
  2. Supply a map of the local area and details of nearby laundromat;
  3. Provide additional facilities such as an area to dry clothes.

I think this is a great initiative by Albany business and I encourage visiting cyclists to support the cycle friendly business when visiting Albany.

Thanks to the Bicycle Transport Alliance for drawing this to my attention.
