Tonight’s Ride Sponsored by Google! Free Segways!
Bike Party doesn’t usually allow any sort of corporate sponsorship. But when Google came to us offering to sponsor our ride with a gift of 100 free Segways, we knew it was an offer we couldn’t refuse. And when we found out they were Robo-Segways, in honor of our Robots & Cyborgs theme, we were fully psyched!
The first 100 people to arrive at Civic Center plaza tonight get to take home one of these awesome pre-programmed, fully-automatic, Robo-Segways. Unlike ordinary Segways, these machines do more than just cruise down the sidewalk, terrorizing old ladies. These things are pre-programmed to get you where you want to go. Just plug in your destination, and it drives itself! How’s that for “human-powered?”
Get to the plaza early — we’ll have pre-programmed each Segway with tonight’s route, so all you’ll have to do is sit back and enjoy the ride! (Please be sure to bring your bike, since supplies of Robo-Segways are limited.)
Of course, Google’s generosity does come with some strings. Each Segway constantly updates the Google servers with geo-tagged information about your location, speed and heart rate — data that Google can use to constantly improve it’s marketing strategies and implement information-sharing solutions with it’s advertising partners. It’s win-win!
