My local community looked into buying very cheap bikes from India, with an advertising plate set within the frame – the bikes would be paid for by the advertiser (they work out at approx $25 each landed, so quite a low cost for the advertiser if the system isn’t designed to make a profit) and as long as they are cycling around they’re being seen and the message is getting across – as well as a PR boost for the individual advertisers to be seen supporting a green initiative
