A Wired report takes a detailed look at the bicycle culture that pervades Google's campus. The company's vast collection of bikes for employee use is fairly well-known by now. The company keeps 1,300 bikes at its Mountain View campus—around one per five workers—as well as some more bizarre models like seven-seater conference bikes. Maintaining this fleet is a full-time job for a team of seven people; each bike racks up an average 1,000 miles of cycle-time per year.
