It was fantastic to see my friend and one of my heroes @gretathunberg last week and go on a bike ride around Santa Monica together and I was so pumped to introduce her to my daughter Christina. Keep inspiring, Greta!

Rumours are that Schwarzenegger offered to loan Thunberg his custom electric Hummer so that Thunberg could travel to Canada for a climate change rally in Montreal, cutting down on her carbon footprint.

Aparently Schwarzenegger set her up with a completely electric Tesla Model 3, much more practical than the huge Hummer.

Schwarzenegger who champions e-bikes, nearly lost his Felt Outfitter e-bike (which retails for around $5,500) back in June when thieves attempted to steal it parked outside his local Gold’s Gym. Thankfully ,his bodyguards who were outside were able to recover his favorite back.

In 2017, Schwarzenegger worked with Paris mayor Anne Hidalgo to help create the C40 Cities and R20 Regions of Climate Action, which agrees to implement the Paris Agreement to fight climate change in their respective cities. Schwarzenegger has been very outspoken about the benefits of e-bikes for a means of transportation.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Excited to kick off our R20 @austrianworldsummit in Vienna. I have to admit I was starstruck when I met @gretathunberg. Tune in tomorrow.
