One thing the Selectism staff loves is watching our favorite metro cities turn a bit greener by offering up bike sharing programs. We’ve seen it ourselves in Barcelona Spain where on every corner you’ll find a few dozen or more share bikes available (residents only for now).

Now jumping on the success of their Paris initiative, is the Velib Bike Program is set to launch in London with 6,000 shared bikes. Considering London has one of the highest congestion taxes (charged to all vehicles coming into the city), this may well push more people to jump into a social movement which not only saves us on pollutants, but may very well make you healthier as well.

Did we mention the first 30minutes are free?  Well done.
