If you can't bring the politicians to bikes...
...bring the bikes to the politicians.
One of the big debates in Streetsblog this week was bike sharing. Last Friday I wrote about some of the problems that excessive security can have on bike access to the DNC. Over the weekend, I thought it over and decided that I put the wrong emphasis in the story. I should have focused on the outstanding bike sharing program that Bikes Belong put together. 1,000 free rental bikes. Nice.
Of course, national conventions aren't the only place that politicians hang out...thus, viola! It's bike sharing in DC.
