Freewheelin Begins

Excitement has been building for months . . . and we never imagined when we started this program a year ago with 25 bikes that we'd end up getting so much attention. Today, the first freewheelin volunteers are arriving in Denver to begin setting up for the convention.

Not surprisingly, its logistically challenging to send and assemble 1,000 bikes and 7 complete stations to a city that's about to host a national political convention! But after a lot of long days and sleepless nights, that's what's happening.

My name is Greg, and I'll be blogging live from the conventions. I'll be on the ground taking pictures and videos to share this experience with anyone who's interested. You'll be hearing a lot from me and my friend Naimul over the next few weeks. We hope you enjoy what we have to say. But even if you don't, we want to hear about it - comment away! And don't forget to follow us on Flickr, MySpace, YouTube, Twitter, etc!

In a few days all of those feeds, plus live webcams from the convention, will be provided through Right now, the "Freewheelin Community" button on that page points back here, but keep trying; the page will be up soon.
Until then, ride on!
