Exclusive audio: Bike Commuter Act press conference

I know this isn’t exactly breaking news, but thought I’d share a recording I made at the recent National Bike Summit.

Blumenauer at the National
Bike Summit, 3/15/07.

One of the highlights of the Summit for me was the press conference where Congressman Earl Blumenauer announced the Bicycle Commuter Act (H.R. 807).

In this audio clip (below), you’ll get a great sense of Blumenauer’s personality. I think you’ll enjoy hearing him tell about his run-in with Newt Gingrich on a treadmill and the historical perspective of his ongoing struggle to bring transportation equity to Capitol Hill.

Here’s the clip* (length 4:30):

(*When he mentions “John” he is referring to Trek President John Burke.)
