Unlike this agency, some governments actually encourage the use of bicycles during the workday by providing loaner fleet of bikes that can be used for travel between government offices.

This Tuscon Citizen article lists these U.S. cities with bikes available for city employee use. Drop in on Urban Places for commentary.

Austin has something similar...although it's not completely a city funded program. Yellow Bike releases bikes to public use 4 times per year. The idea is that you use the bike and leave it out for the next person to come along and grab it. You don't have to return it anywhere...just make it available for the next person.

I plan on volunteering there in the near future. They have a community shop as well. Pretty cool program!
