Arnold Schwarzenegger and Mayor Boris Johnson

Aww! How cute. Ha!

Arnold Schwarzenegger posed with the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson on Wednesday to promote Barclay's Cycle Hire Scheme held at The Queen's Walk in London, England.

What's the Barclay's Cycle Hire, you ask?

It is a public bicycle sharing scheme that was launched in 2010 designed to be used for public transportation with a scheme stretching 17 square miles around Central London.

Much like riding the bus, users must pay a usage fee to ride one of the 5,000 "Boris bikes" available on the track.

Riders rent bikes from one of the 315 docks located along the route, with the first thirty minutes free.

We definitely think this is an inneresting idea that can cut down on gas, promote a healthy lifestyle, AND helps cut down fuel emissions for the environment.

With over one million bicycle trips made within the first ten weeks of the launch, the scheme is being expanded into east London.

Could this replace gas powered local transportation one day? Only time will tell!

Who better to endorse a bicycle sharing scheme than our very own unofficial mascot for bike riding?

Okay, maybe Lance Armstrong.
