Bicycle Benefits Come to Willmar
The Willmar Bikes Group and the Willmar Lakes Area Convention & Visitors Bureau have started the Bicycle Benefits program in Willmar. Participating businesses offer deals to bicyclists who ride their bike to their business and have the bicycle benefits sticker on their helmet. Stickers cost $5 and are available for purchase at participating businesses. The first seventy-five participants in the Willmar Bikes April Rides will get a free sticker.
