Mo pedaling, mo money.

It’s a good time to be a biker in the city: bike lanes are appearing all over; the weather’s turning nicer; and now, small businesses are offering discounts and free stuff for people who arrive via bicycle. Bike NYC, the city’s new hub for “all things bicycling,” lists a lot of these on its deals page. Most are 10 percent to 25 percent off various food joints such as the Pulp and Bean in Crown Heights, but there are discounts on passes to Brooklyn Boulders and even merchandise at The Little Lebowski Shop if you arrive on two wheels.
