Bike Capitol

Rep. Earl Blumenauer, founder of the Congressional Bike Caucus, has never been stuck in traffic while on a bike. Elected in 1996, his first visit to the vice president at the time, Al Gore, was unique for all involved. "It was kind of funny because the guards didn't quite know what to do," he says. "There wasn't much bike traffic from Congress, I guess." But since then, bicycling participation in D.C. has grown.
