Didu Losso Contributor

By Didu Losso in New Trends on Thursday 1 November 2012

Bike Sampa is a sustainable project in São Paulo City. You pay a one time fee of R$10 reais (around US$5) for a bike pass, then you can have 30 minute free rides, everyday, as many times you want, with 15 minute intervals from one ride to the other. The bikes are spread all over town in strategic locations, resulting in a partial solution to São Paulo’s chronic traffic problem.

Even better: it’s all scored with music from the Velvet Underground, 1970s disco, and Polish-Czechoslovakian folk music.
