Electric bikes made by French company Moustache are displayed during the Cycle Show 2013 in Paris.

Many of us don’t think about the environmental impact of driving a short distance to a lunch date or meeting.

In a small way, the city of Las Vegas is trying to make a dent in that belief. A new program gives public employees the option of riding electric bikes.
