The Guardian reports:

Google is improving its green credentials by offering all of its employees a free bike to ride to work.

The bikes, manufactured by Raleigh Europe, will be offered to around 2,000permanent employees of the search engine giant in Europe, the MiddleEast and Africa. All of the bikes - plus free helmets - will be brandedwith the Google name.
