Posted by on May 12th, 2009 at 1:27 pm

This just in, from the Office of U.S. Congressman Earl Blumenauer:

Tomorrow, Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.), Co-Chair of the Congressional Bike Caucus, will join with fellow Caucus members for the Congressional Cycling Fair. In honor of National Bike to Work Week and to show their support of bike issues and bike to work opportunities on the Hill, members of the Congressional Bike Caucus will square off in a mini-spinning contest versus the Altarum Institute’s Professional Women’s Cycling team.

According to the press release, other Bike Caucus members joining Rep. Blumenauer are Rep. Tom Petri (R- Wis.), Rep. Mike Quigley (D-Ill.), and Rep. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D- D.C.).

I’d love to get a photo of this.
