Since STRiDA Folding bikes are so different from other bicycles, one of the biggest requests I receive is to test ride a bike before purchasing. I have teamed up with Spinlister.com to offer both a STRiDA EVO 3 Speed as well as a STRiDA LT for rentals from a couple hours to days at a time.

If you’re interested in renting a STRiDA Folding Bike, here’s a chance to save a lot of money and discover the joy of riding a STRiDA. Spinlister is offering a 75% discount on bike rentals for Cyber Monday. From Spinlister:

CicLAvia temporarily removes cars from L.A. streets – and the streets fill up with smiles!

With five hugely successful CicLAvias under our belt, we are currently preparing for the next round of CicLAvia events in 2013: CicLAvia – To the Sea on April 21; CicLAvia – Iconic Wilshire Boulevard on June 23; and CicLAvia – Heart of LA on October 6.

CicLAvia makes the streets safe for people to walk, skate, play and ride a bike. There are activities along the route. Shop owners and restaurants are encouraged to open their doors to people along the CicLAvia.

Ciclovías started in Bogotá, Colombia, over thirty years ago as a response to the congestion and pollution of city streets. Now they happen throughout Latin America and the United States.

Connecting communities and giving people a break from the stress of car traffic. The health benefits are immense. Ciclovías bring families outside of their homes to enjoy the streets, our largest public space. In Los Angeles we need CicLAvia more than ever. Our streets are congested with traffic, our air is polluted with toxic fumes, our children suffer from obesity and other health conditions caused by the scarcity of public space and safe, healthy transportation options. CicLAvia creates a temporary park for free, simply by removing cars from city streets. It creates a network of connections between our neighborhoods and businesses and parks with corridors filled with fun. We can’t wait to see you at CicLAvia!

Lloyd Alter of Tree Hugger writes:

But the extraordinary asset that the Strida offers is its five second fold; it changes the way you use a bike. I used to carry a lock that weighed more than my bike and still worried about whether it would be there when I got back. Now that Igor the bicycle thief has been arrested the rate of theft has dropped significantly, but with the Strida I don’t bother even taking a lock much of the time- I just fold it up and take it inside. If anyone complains (only one store has) I ask if they allow baby strollers into their store- the Strida doesn’t take any more space. Instead of being a mode of transportation that has to be parked, it becomes the latest fashion accessory.

I think that it is also a game-changer in that it is so easy and quick to fold- you treat it very differently than a normal bike, you take it into places that even a normal bike can’t go. Folded up, you can push it like a stroller; TreeHugger founder Graham Hill hangs his up in a closet.

I can fold it in five seconds and I can pack it in its travelling bag in 30 seconds and am taking it to New York again this week, and to the Greenbuild conference in Boston in November- it is that quick and easy.
