Kicking Into High Gear: Nation's Largest Bike-Sharing Program Debuts at Democratic National Convention
Date:8/24/2008

ikes Belong provides an excellent way for people to exercise, and we all know exercise is critical to protecting one's health. I encourage everyone planning to attend the conventions to strap on a helmet and safely pedal their way to good health during their stay in Denver or Minneapolis-St. Paul."

Bike-sharing is the international social movement whereby bikes are situated at designated stations throughout cities for individuals to use for a specified amount of time. It is a viable transportation alternative for those who prefer an environmentally friendly, cost-effective and healthy means of traveling, especially for short trips. By providing these bikes to the Democratic and Republican convention cities, Humana and Bikes Belong hope to increase awareness of bicycling in the minds of all involved with the conventions -- from the delegates to the media to even the presidential candidates themselves.

After its debut in Denver, Freewheelin moves on to the Republican National Convention in Minneapolis-St. Paul, where Humana and Bikes Belong also will provide 1,000 bikes for free use. In total, Bikes Belong member companies provided more than $500,000 worth of biking equipment to both convention cities.

How Freewheelin Works

Bikes will be available in Denver from Aug. 25-28; and in Minneapolis-St. Paul for the Republican convention from Sept. 1-4. Participants who register in advance via the Freewheelin Web site -- http://www.freewheelinwaytogo.com -- will be ready to check out a bike from one of the multiple bike stations throughout the convention cities. Online registration and use of the bikes during the conventions is free, with all related costs paid by Humana and Bikes Belong. Bikes will be available beginning at 7 a.m. each day of the conventions, and don't have to be returned to a bike station until 7 p.m. each day. The bikes can be picked up and returned to any station (l
