Cycling by yourself through the streets of your city can be risky, not to mention lonely. So why not making it a safer and more social experience with the help of Bike Pool? They’ll find you the perfect buddy to bike with around town, and as a bonus, you might even get lucky.

“I wasn’t just looking for a someone to ride with. I was looking for someone to ride,” boasts their e-Harmony-style ad.

So it’s that kind of bike pool, huh?
