TheWashCycle puzzles over the Web site of a bike-rental business recently feted in The Washingtonian. Besides the usual services, the company says it also “provides confidential services to those in high-visibility professions” and that hotel concierges “suggest Better Bikes for their guests needing confidentiality.” WashCycle sagely notes that this sounds like an escort service. I dunno, though: considering the fashion Guernica that results whenever cyclists congregate, such as at the recent Bike to Work Day gathering (above), maybe a little discretion is what this sport needs.
