The ever-progressive city of Long Beach is always trying ways to get people to diversify they way they travel around. For cyclists, sharrows and bicycle boxes have been improvements to the city infrastructure and since last Summer, they've been partnering with restaurants for a First Fridays type of event where bicycle commuters get lunch discounts at a number of local restaurants.

"The campaign is aimed to get more people to leave their cars at home and start realizing the global and personal benefits of riding a bicycle or using another form of alternate transportation," a city advisory stated. "Choosing to commute by bicycle, even on occasion, can have immediate positive health and environmental results."

From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. next Friday, 27 eateries are giving Long Beachers discounts. Cyclists need only mention the promotion and show proof of ridership in the form of their helmet or bicycle lock key to take advantage of the discounts. The list of restaurants are below:
