The Washington Post is giving some media-love to Minnesota’s Representative Jim Oberstar, and his love of the bicycle.
Oberstar is presently working to provide bicycle storage at airports — something quite common in some European and Asian nations, but far less common in the United States. He’s also looking to provide better bicycle access into airports.
I’m waiting for someone to claim Homeland Security concerns. I know they do that already with storage lockers in most transit points, but on-airport parking still exists for cars. It’s a lot easier to do mischief with a 2,000 pound auto than it is with even a crummy commuter fixie.
