Representative Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) is a big champion of cycling, and in this video explains why it makes so much sense in cities.
I'm a bit late on this, as National Bike Summit Week at the beginning of the month, but I just came across this great Politico video of Representative Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) talking about his favorite mode of transportation: cycling. Blumenauer is beloved in the cycling and livable streets communities for his consistent and outspoken support of cycling as a serious mode of transportation. He founded the Congressional Bike Caucus, after all. As this video is evidence, clearly he doesn't just talk the talk, but, um, pedals the pedal?
