    I got this in my inbox this morning - bicycle commuter act

    I found this interesting -- this is from roadbikerider.com:


    ---Last week we mentioned the Bicycle Commuter Act (H.R.807, S.2635). It's before the U.S. congress right now. Here's how it'll work if passed into law:*The bill provides a tax benefit to employers who offer cash reimbursements to employees to defray costs of riding to work. All it requires is an amendment to the Transportation Fringe Benefit of the tax code to extend the definition of "transportation" to include bicycles. Employers are given the flexibility to set their level of benefit payments, and the bike commuter can use the money to pay*for a bicycle, accessories, safety equipment, insurance, and locker or shower fees. If you like this concept, click http://capwiz.com/lab/issues/alert/?alertid=8647031. Then put in your zip code and the page will generate e-mails to all your congress people. Just sign and click send. We did.

    cool! I'm willing to do several of them. I printed out the page and am going to sign up soon.

    I helped develop the Blue Cruise a little bit when I worked at BCIdaho but left prior to the first event and didn't do it... yeah thanks for letting me know about these Brett!
