Tycoons Life Cycles

China's biggest philanthropist has come up with a wheel smart way to clean up the country's pollution - by giving away 1,000 free bicycles to promote low-carbon travel.

Billionaire Chen Guangbiao even performed some stunt tricks on one of the bikes after a ceremony to hand them over in Nanjing, in Jiangsu province.

World famous concert pianist Lang Lang played an open air piano as hundreds of bikers rode past.

The tycoon - known as Brother Biao to his fans - is famous for his headline grabbing stunts and last year marketed cans of fresh air to highlight China's pollution crisis.

He claims to have given away nearly 130 million GBP to good causes and says he will not leave a penny to his relatives when he dies.
