Group plans bicycle valet service for inauguration

  WASHINGTON (AP) - One group wants to make it easier for people to ride bicycles to the inauguration instead of adding to the anticipated congestion on the roads and rails. The Washington Area Bicyclist Association is working on plans to offer a bicycle valet service Jan. 20. Valet stations would be set up at McPherson Square and near the Jefferson Memorial.

The group says volunteers would watch the bicycles while the riders enjoyed the day's events. Riders wouldn't need a lock and would receive a commemorative ticket to reclaim the bike. The plan has won financial support from the national cycling advocacy group America Bikes. Minneapolis company Dero Bike Racks plans to lend its bike racks.

D.C. transportation officials say they also support the idea.
