Day 134 & 135: MLwC, it’s a bike-a-licious world!

This story has been out for a few months but I only just ran across it yesterday: Google is offering 2000 bikes to its employees in EMEA

Of course the idea came out of uber-green Germany from Holger Meyer, Google.de’s first employee. So, why are they doing it?

So their employees can be healthier, get to know their city better and reduce the enviro-impact of carbon based transportation.

Dailys stats: (Thursday and Friday
Bike: 0
Car: 27 miles(2 person, 5 tasks)
Ped: 1 or 2 miles
Bus: 0
other: 0

  1. Cass. I love your blog, especially the counter at the bottom of each post, and all the great links. I am glad your significant other dared you!

    You may enjoy visiting my blog, for a bit of green humor and inconvenient truth . . . Actually, I would love to get your comments on it, particularly about your own “daily sins”.

  2. Give me an old cool bicycle, and I’ll ride around the city for days.
