Business Insider Australia reported that this week in France, some 20 companies and institutions employing a total of 10,000 people signed up to pay their staff 25 euro cents (34 U.S. cents) per kilometre biked to work. That’s right, French folks are getting paid to ride their bikes to work. It’s all part of a six-month test that aims to boost bicycle use to boost people’s health, reduce air pollution and cut fossil fuel consumption.
In the spirit of this perk and to inspire our Gallic busichics as well any of us thinking about cycling (Aussies, there’s no dinero in it for us yet but locally we can sign up with the Ride 2 Work initiative – the next National Ride2Work Day is on Wednesday 15th October 2014. Registrations open in July and it’s free!), here are my pictures of stylish cyclists I photographed riding around Japan accompanied by some style tips.
