Dublin cyclists rank Aldi as having the best bike parking facilities across all supermarkets in the capital 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.
Aldi now offers bike parking spots to shoppers at the majority of its stores across the country. The retailer has committed to ensuring bike parking facilities are a feature of all new stores and plans to improve biking parking facilities for existing stores in the future.
Welcoming the survey findings, John Curtin, group buying director, Aldi Ireland said he was delighted with the result.
“Cycling to our stores is a great way to help the environment and we encourage customers to cycle as much as practically possible,” Curtin said. “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.”
“Congratulations to Aldi for coming out top in the survey,” said David Timoney from Dublin Cycling Campaign.
“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,” Timoney said.
“Dublin Cycling Campaign wants to work with all retailers, including Aldi, to help them achieve this change,” he added.
