Interesting Experiment:France will pay people to bike to work to see what happens

A 6-month experiment has begun in France to try to boost cycling. 20 companies and institutions with around 10,000 employees will be paying 25 Euro cents (about 34 US cents) per kilometer that is biked to the workplace. France isn’t the first country in Europe to do this; Denmark, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium and Britain have a variety of bike-to-work schemes, aiming to improve health, reduce pollution, reduce oil consumption, etc.
