This being the tail end of both National Bike Month and Ride Your Bike to Work Week, we hope you turned green, as many Googlers did, by pumping your way to the office (and reducing carbon emissions along the way). Even though the Mountain View, CA Googleplex is close by several freeways, it seems quite a number of us managed to make our way in on spokes. The rewards were considerable: a free bike tune-up, bottled water, and the all-important commemorative T-shirt. Not bad for a Thursday at the office.
