Ikea gives all 12,000+ employees a bike
Sounds like a cool holiday gift to us. Ikea announced last week that all 12,400 of its U.S. employees would recieve a new bike courtesy of the Sweedish furniture retailer.
The company's self-congradulatory press release cites all the benefits of cycling as its reasons for the gift, including excercise and sustainability. Certainly two great causes a company would like to be associated with. Though Ikea hasn't always played nice with the cycling community.
The "all-terrain" bike itself is certainly... distinct. It has a unique frame design with Ikea's colors featured subtly. No word yet on if it requires you to assemble it at home with an allen key.
