I'd like to be able to ride to an airport... I take occational 1-2 day trips to nearby cities.  Not to mention being able to ride to the duty free shop! - jk

Subject: [*BCM*] bill to support bike storage at airports

Just found the following article:

where it points out that Rep James Oberstar (MN) inserted a provision
in a spending bill that provides federal monies for bike storage at
airports (for air passengers).

The commentary is rather weak with the author asking the following
questions:  "Who would ever want to ride a bike to the airport? How
would you get your luggage there -- in a side car?" and "how do you
safely navigate NASCAR-inspired cabbies and other drivers racing to
catch a plane?".  It doesn't seem to occur to the author that these
might be considered solved problems by many cyclists.
