Who says going “green” and bicycling sharing can’t be sexy? Not us!   Our DecoBike Ambassadors Francesca Frigo and Chad Ochocinco appeared again in Playboy showing their support for our DecoBike South Beach & Miami Beach bicycle sharing programs. Playboy fans know Frigo as the stunning Playmate and Miss August 2010, and NFL fans have watched Ochocinco master the football field for years. Both of the DecoBike members reside in South Beach and are big supporters of sustainable and healthy initiatives, so DecoBike was a great fit for them to get involved.  Ochocinco and Frigo are often spotted riding around town staying fit and having fun on our bikes, after all it is the best way to enjoy South Beach. DecoBike would like to thank them for all their support and participating in numerous community events with us, including the City of Miami Beach Children’s Summer Camp where Frigo, Ochocinco and the DecoBike team  educated kids on bike safety, environmental responsibility, fitness and healthy living.
