Transportation Manager Bikes Right To The Stage

I interrupt your Election Day post-game analysis with a second universal, non-partisan bicycle story from Sunday's Bicycle Bash.

Tampa Mayor Bib Buckhorn was telling the crowd about the city's commitment to improving bicycling and mentioned the city's transportation division manager, Jean Duncan.

The mayor asks, "Where's Jean?" And Jean, straddling her Trek 820 mountain bike, responds, "Here I am, mayor," and proceeds to bike from her spot right up to the stage where the mayor was speaking.

When your city's transportation manager rides her bicycle to the stage to be next to the mayor you know your city will improve its bicycling scene.
