Matthew Modine visits Freewheelin

Actor Matthew Modine ("Full Metal Jacket") paid a visit to freewheelin this morning. The well-known actor and activist is in town promoting Bicycle For A Day - a group that "supports organizations that restore and protect our environment and make biking safer and more accessible for everyone." Modine, who was accompanied by a documentary filmmaking crew, spent about an hour at Freewheelin's main station on 14th and Stout. During that time, he went through the bike check-out process, chatted with Humana and Bikes Belong volunteers, and toured Humana's automated CycleStation with Nate Kvamme.
Modine will be using his freewheelin bike to lead a large ride this afternoon in support of Bicycle For A Day . . . and may be joined by other freewheelers. Check our our Flickr photostream for some more great shots.
