Pedal Through the Conventions in Bus-Cycles
Posted at 1:51 p.m. on Aug. 31, 2012
For all the squishy, closeness of the conventions, getting around is always difficult.
Public transport is a pain, Uber limos have a wait and, at least in Tampa, Fla., a $50 minimum. Your co-workers have bogarted the rental, and walking is for hobos and coastal elites.
If there was only something that brought together strangers from the bus and the bicycle, where you could get exercise and hang out with strangers.
Now there is!
The “health and well-being company” Humana has brought 20 “pedal buses,” which are powered by up to eight passengers and a driver, to the Republican National Convention. These bus-cycles will be pedaling around the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C., as well.
