Become A Peddler In Barcelona


Barcelona is a very pedestrian-friendly city.  They are doing what they can to get people to stop using cars. And here's a great idea.  For a monthly fee, you can pick up a bike like this at any number of spots in the city, ride it to where you need to go, and drop it off at any nearby place just like this.  Ethan and I were walking one day in the evening sun and there were long shadows flowing through the small piazza and folks were strolling and pigeons were eating.  It was a beautiful scene to end the day.

This is also on iPod4 photo.  PS3 editing including noise reduction, Ilford film (125 ASA), neutral density, dodging and burning as well as a background blur feature.

They have the same service (Vélo Libre) in a number of cities in France, and it is also now available in Montréal. It's a terrific idea!

It IS a terrific idea! We ought to start looking at programs like this in our own communities. Yay bike power!
