Yesterday, Loose Lips Daily linked to San Francisco Bike Blog— which thinks the Washington Area Bicycle Association should bring its bike valet service to Inauguration 2009.
“Who wants to get hands-runneth-over by security guards just so you can stand on a packed [Metro] platform with dudes in blue, carrying big, automatic weapons? Not me. People need to be able to go by bike, and they need a place to put their bikes when they arrive. The local cycling organization knows how to do bike valet parking – they should offer it at the inauguration.”
Turns out WABA has a Thursday meeting with DDOT to discuss doing exactly that.
If all goes well at the meeting, says WABA staffer Henry Mesias, the organization will set up a bike valet station towards the south of the Capitol and just outside the inauguration’s hard-security-perimeter.
