Bikes Invade Richmond

On Saturday morning hundreds of cyclists road Critical Mass style through the street of Richmond, BC.  It was a "Go Green Go Dutch Go Bike" event that was also the kick-off for a program that saw the Netherlands Consulate donate 400 bikes for use during the Olympic period. The Third Wave Cycling blog has a good description of the ride.

The program to donate 400 bikes for use at the Richmond venues seems to me to be one of the few truly "green" elements to the 2010 games.  Not surprisingly it is not VANOC initiative.
