Great Bike Deal for Better World Club Members!

Better World Club Partners With PUBLIC Bikes to Give Away Two Bicycles-
and Memberships to Go With Them

(Because These Things Are So Awesome, We Know You'll Want to Ride Them Across Town...
and Down That One Really Steep Hill...As Soon As They're Out of the Box)

Some of us love gearing up in Lycra, strapping 5 water bottles to our carbon-fiber road bike, and speeding off in a spray of sweat and machismo. If, on the other hand, you'd prefer a leisurely jaunt to work in your skirt (or suit); if you'd like a bike that makes you feel the glee of a 10-year-old; if you want something stylish, simple, sturdy, and designed for the kinds of trips you're likely to make as a busy commuter, parent, student or shopper; a PUBLIC bike might be a better fit.

These bikes shine with classy colors, have solid engineering, and are customizable with exactly the accessories you need. You can comfortably ride them all over town, but won't need to adjust a lot of components (or mail-order replacements from Mongolia). In fact, PUBLIC bikes will ship everything you need right to your door, 99% ready to roll. They'll even tell you how to re-purpose the shipping box into a stylish lampshade.

To enter to win a PUBLIC bike, you just need to enter this fun photo contest before November 17th. The most shared photo will win one PUBLIC bike. The most creative photo will win the other. PUBLIC believes that our public spaces should be designed with bicyclists and pedestrians in mind. Better World Club shares this belief and we think you do too. We encourage you to enter and share with your friends the benefits of bicycling!

PUBLIC bikes is also offering Better World Club members 10% off all their bikes and accessories! Check out the discounts section of our member page for more info!

Member Discount for the Earthbox Motel and Spa

Visit the Earthbox Motel on San Juan Island

Bring Your Sweetheart, Bathing Suit, Even the Family Dog - and Leave the Mainland Behind
(Along With Those Pesky Kids)

Research indicates that residents of San Juan Island, located an hour's ferry ride from Anacortes, Washington, have developed a complex system of neighborly acknowledgement based on the number of fingers they raise from the steering wheels of their farm trucks. The island, in short, is a world apart, and the Earthbox Motel takes you one step farther.

Rooms are divided into several categories to better fit your stay. All feature a choice between carpet and wood floors, and options include a full kitchen, private balcony, jetted tub, and extra floor space. Free wireless internet and iPod-docking radios hide behind the retro décor of this ocean-view abode. Your stay includes free access to beach-cruiser bikes, pool, jacuzzi, sauna, and gym. Even we jaded urbanites think that's worth a friendly wave!
