Dublin cyclists rank Aldi Ireland as having the best bike parking facilities across all supermarkets in Dublin, according to a new independent survey released this week.
The Shop By Bike survey, conducted by independent cycling advocacy group, Dublin Cycling Campaign, found that over half of respondents rated Aldi’s bike parking facilities as 'good', beating all other retailers surveyed.
"With many of us living more locally these days and using local supermarkets more often, there is a great opportunity for supermarkets to upgrade and enhance their cycle parking," said David Timoney from Dublin Cycling Campaign.
"Dublin Cycling Campaign wants to work with all retailers, including Aldi, to help them achieve this change,” he added.
Bike Parking Spots
Aldi now offers bike parking spots to shoppers at the majority of its stores across the country.
“Cycling to our stores is a great way to help the environment and we encourage customers to cycle as much as practically possible," said John Curtin, group buying director, Aldi Ireland.
"We have listened to our customers and we will now be including bike parking facilities at all our new stores and working with Dublin Cycle Campaign on our existing network of stores, which is another step in moving towards a more sustainable future,” he added.
