Have 99 Friends? Get a free bike.

UPDATE: So, looks like Brilliant Bicycles did not think this promo out too well. They ended the promotion early and also limited the number of bikes they were giving away. That sucks. It’s never cool to change the terms midway through a promotion. I can only assume using emails to confirm friends lead to a lot of fake email signups. Unfortunately, it leaves a bad taste in the mouth of anyone who was legitimately trying to earn a bike. Not a great way to launch a new company…


While this has nothing to do with Buenos Aires, it’s still a pretty cool idea…

Got 99 friends? Get a free bike.Brilliant Bicycle is launching their new website and if you get 99 friends to sign up for their mailing list by March 22, you’ll get a free bike. If you happen to fall short of the 99 friends, they’ll still give you a discount on a new bike.

I’d love to have your help in getting a free bike! Once you sign up with my link, you can start sending it to all your friends!

(It’s US only, so you’ll have to ship it to someone there…)



Buenos Aires Bicycle Rental Now Available to Tourists

Buenos Aires Tourist Bicycle RentalThe “Mejor en bici” service is now available to tourists in Buenos Aires as well as locals. Renting a bike is a great way to see Buenos Aires, but up until now the service was only available with local identification.

The bicycle rental service is completely free and available from 8am to 8pm Monday to Friday and 9am to 3pm on Saturday. You can find a list of bicycle stations and the routes here.
