Buenos Aires Better By Bike

The City of Buenos Aires has been encouraging the use of bicycles to solve complex problems associated with traffic, health and pollution. A new print advertising campaign, developed at La Comunidad, encourages the use of bicycles even more by promoting the benefits that riding a bike grants to the different parts of our body. The “Eco Bici” (Eco Bike) sustainable mobility campaign launched in 2010 includes a network of 800 public bicycles, 32 stations and more than 62 miles of cycle paths. Use of bicycles has increased by six times as a mean of urban transport, reaching over two million rides. All this progress is making the city become better with each passing day, as well as the people living in it. Five posters, “Lungs”, “Knees”, “Heart”, “Head” and “Stomach”, each include the tag line, “Better By Bike”.

A heart so strong only love can break it.
