Google-branded bikes for Google employees

I can't believe Googler Warren missed this: Google is giving away 2000 bicycles to employees in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Googlers will be able to choose from a range of models including a "cool cruiser" - a folding bike for those that only make part of their trip to work under pedal power - and men's and women's hybrids. The bikes are manufactured by Raleigh Europe; the bikes and helmets will be branded with the Google name.

Via Grist. More on Raleigh Bicycles later this weekend.

It would quite the coup for the rest of us civilians to snag a google folder.

Dude, I've been on vacation for over a week and have done my best to avoid all things workish... Google did have their alternative transportation day this last week -- missed that too , but then ~80% of the time I'm self-propelled.

I am a little jealous. I missed the Google bike helmets a couple years ago, too.
