    Apple has given its green credentials a boost by offering employees bicycles to commute across its vast campus in Cupertino, California.

    9to5Mac quotes Brazil-based MacMagazine:

    “…the bikes that Apple is now offering its employees are all aluminum, very good taste, have only three gears (heavy, light and normal) and still have a bag for MacBook, Cases, and the like.”

    The new bikes will prove handy, as Apple continues to grow its presence beyond its main campus on Infinite Loop, to the nine new buildings they recently leased.

    And we reported last month on Apple’s plans to build new, bigger premises in Cupertino, on land Apple purchased from Hewlett Packard. Steve Jobs made a personal pitch to the Cupertino City Council with a view to having his plans approved.
