Bike Stamps Debut in Minneapolis

Minnesota's Star Tribune reports, "Giant postage stamps towed by bicyclists cruised around downtown Minneapolis Thursday morning. They were publicizing the national rollout of four new stamps from the U.S. Postal Service in a ceremony on the steps of the Central Library."

According to the article by reporter Kristian Hernandez, "At the library, four people arrived on bikes of the kinds depicted on the stamps: Postmaster Gina Hellerman, on a BMX-style bike; Erick Keskey, a business solutions specialist for the Postal Service, on a commuter bike; Louis Moore, president of the Major Taylor Bicycling Club, riding a road racer; and Oliva Bordon, a third-grader at Lyndale Elementary School, on a kid's bike."

Minneapolis-St. Paul television station KARE reports, "The release is in conjunction with Bike Walk Week in the Twin Cities, an annual celebration inviting people to kick off summer by trying bicycling and walking for at least one trip during the week that they otherwise would have driven."
