Bikes at the Democratic Convention
I found out yesterday that the Democratic Convention is going to have a mess of bikes and they are looking for volunteers to, um, I guess, do some bike stuff. From the email someone forwarded to me:
We also have added two new groups: Green and Bikes. If you are willing to help with the green aspects of the convention, let us know by checking one or both of these. Green groups will help with things like recycling, grounds maintenance and other sustainability activities.The bikes group will handle the 1000 bicycles that have been donated to the convention for those people in attendance who want to reduce their carbon footprint. We need volunteers to supervise bike stations, check bikes out to delegates or convention guests, and generally oversee this environmentally-friendly program.
If that sounds like something you’d like to go to Denver for, here’s the link! Looks like the deadline is March 15, that’s tomorrow! I have heard of some bikes heading to the Republican Convention, but I get the feeling it’s not this sort of thing.
