The RoGBC opened a very convenient spot for bicycle parking inside its office.   The first  to occupy the lot was

from a generous donation to the RoGBC by  Friedrich Niemann, General Manager of the Athenee Palace Hilton Bucharest.  Friedrich had previously a bike when all 250 employees of the Hilton in Bucharest received a free bicycle for their part in winning a European-wide contest within Hilton International for the property with the greatest energy efficiency improvements.    Friedrich, an avid cyclist who already owned a bike, thought we could put his new one to good use in our Council.

He was right.   While our team tries to utilize public transit as much as possible, there are times when we previously needed to take a taxi to meetings and events.   We did an estimated payback period for a bike and concluded – assuming we paid 300 Euro for the bike – it would be paid back in less than 12 months.    Paying zero Euros for the bike helped our payback period even more.   Thanks Friedrich!

Hilton also installed plenty of bicycle parking in front of its Roberto’s on La Strada Terrace and for its employees to put their new bicycles.

and… visitors to the RoGBC office… please feel free to visit us with your own bike!
