Liquid Aims to Be AirBNB of Bike World

Liquid Aims to Be AirBNB of Bike World | Ô bô velô ! | Scoop.it
Bike sharing services are ripping around the globe aiding mobility in big cities. But bike sharing doesn't always make it easy for the average tourist to get a bike. Now a new service wants to be the AirBNB of biking.
Ludovic Plisson's insight:

"Bike owners still can earn incremental income while meeting people who share an interest (and often a passion) for bikes. Renters still get to rent a great bike at a reasonable price from a friendly local. We’re deeply committed to making this interaction as safe, easy, and downright fun as possible."
