National Journal Reports on Influence Pedaling at Dem Convention

On Sunday the influential political magazine/website National Journal had a lengthy advance report on the goings on in denver this week.

The best part of the report, for bicyclists anyway, was buried halfway into the piece, by reporter Randy Barrett:

Can't find a taxi? No worries. The convention host committee and Humana have partnered with Bikes Belong, a nonprofit bicycling-advocacy group, to bring 1,000 bikes to Denver this week.

At no cost, delegates, locals, and other convention-goers can check out a bicycle at one of seven bike kiosks in and around the downtown area starting on Monday. Helmets and water will also be available.

Anyone who registers online at freewheelinwaytogo.com  or at one of the kiosks can pick up a bike beginning at 7 a.m., and return it to a station by 10 p.m. the same day. The stations are easily identifiable by their blue tents with the letter "F" for "freewheelin" on top.

The largest supply of bikes (275) is on 14th Street, between Wynkoop and Wewatta, just off the Pepsi Center site near the Invesco Field light-rail station. Another station is at the Denver Art Museum, and one is across the street from the convention center, where many delegation events will take place.

Anyone really, truly, interested in the REST of the report can find it here. ;-D
