Be the first to get a PUBLIC bike. To get this ride started, we are offering you the chance to win an 8-speed or 3-speed PUBLIC bike. No purchase is necessary – or possible – as our bikes are not available for sale until late spring, 2010. All you need to do is intrigue us, inspire us, with your vision of how your world will look from the seat of a PUBLIC bike. Send us a 200 word essay to enter.
