We have a Bike Love Contest Winner!

Wednesday, August 3rd, 2011

Thanks to everyone who sent in their photos and entered Accent Inns Bike Love Contest. We received many exciting, fun and scenic photos and the staff here all had different favorites.  We didn’t choose the winner though…you folks did.

Commuting like this is really starting to cramp our style!

Keri Coles has been crowned the first ever Bike Love photo contest winner!  Congratulations Keri,  who received 98 likes and is the Big Winner off $1000 in Norco Gift Certificates. Congratulations again Keri, now you can upgrade & get a better bike for commuting.

As the Bike Friendly hotel chain in B.C. we are thrilled to see and hear from so many of you that are also bike enthusiasts.  Some of you talked about road racing, some about radical mountain bike trips and it’s always fun to see children excited about cycling.

Several folks out there have asked…”why did Accent Inns put on a Bike Love Contest?”

We put together this contest so that we could meet many of the other Bike Lovers out there and to make sure anyone wanting to travel around BC now has a fantastic Bike friendly hotel option.

Here’s what we think a bike friendly hotel should offer…and we do!

Store your bike(s) in your hotel room -
*designated “bike friendly rooms” located conveniently on the ground floor.

Bicycle wash and tuning station at every Accent Inn
great for getting the “trail” or “road” off of your bike. No more bending over to work on your bike.
Simply clamp your ride into the professional grade bike stand & tune / clean away.

Advanced Mechanic Tool Kit available for use
includes 37 shop quality park tools so you can do everything from brake adjustments
to  headset overhauls.  You just might need to stay an extra night to play with it all.

Rags available – great for cleaning and drying your bike.

On-Site Laundry rooms available at all of our BC hotels

after all –  it might not be just the bike that needs a wash after a day on the trail

Congrats again to Keri Coles the winner of the Bike Love photo contest.

Strap on that helmet: Accent Inns now a true, bike friendly hotel

Thursday, May 19th, 2011

May 18, 2011, Victoria, BC

Mandy Farmer President & CEO

A new program by the BC family owned and operated hotel chain Accent Inns is going to make travelling with your bicycle a whole lot easier.

The program, called “Bike Love,” rolls out May 20, 2011 at all five Accent Inns’ hotel locations and is aimed at bike lovers who enjoy travelling with their two-wheeled friends.

“Vacationing and competitive cyclists – both amateur and pro – already know all too well how tough it can be to find bike-friendly accommodations,” said Mandy Farmer, CEO of Accent Inns. “As an cycling enthusiast and mountain bike lover myself, I figured the time was now to introduce a bike-friendly program to the BC hotel marketplace – one that went above-and-beyond the standard ‘leave your bike chained to the rack outside,’ deal.” (more…)
