Bike sharing a success at Democratic convention

According to Bike Portland, the Freewheelin' bike sharing program sponsored by health care company Humana Corporation, Bikes Belong, and several bike manufacturers was a big success at the Democratic convention in Denver last week.

"Blumenthal [of Bikes Belong] says so far the program has been a smashing success. 'Right now, it’s the middle of the day, and I just got a report that 875 of the 1,000 bikes are out.' He also added that the bikes have made a big impact on the streets of Denver. 'The bike dynamic here,' he said, 'has changed dramatically in the last three days. Not only have we put 1,000 bikes on the road, but the whole scene is different… the "safety in numbers" thing is totally happening.'"

Denver has installed sharrows in several locations in anticipation of the increase in cyclists in the city. Check out a video of the bike sharing program in action.
