Google’s multicolored bikes are meant to help employees travel quickly across its Mountain View campus, not go for a swim. But in the last few weeks, community group members have found at least 12 of the bikes in nearby Stevens Creek. Google reports one or two of its employee bikes typically go missing every few months; there’s no word yet on why so many more are turning up in the water lately.
