'08 New England HPV Rally in Burlington, VT

Hi All,
For those interested in bicycling for transportation, and/or alternative, interesting, and innovative types of cycles, the HPV Burlington Bikefest in Burlington, VT on October 4 and 5 might be of interest.

More information is being posted on the website at www.hpvburlingtonbikefest.org. (It's a little rough, but should get the idea across)

Hope to see you all there (I might be bringing a Borealis Velomobile!)

Cheers,
-Ethan

HPV. Bad choice for an acronym. Ride a bike. Get HPV!

At any rate, I'll have to look into this.

Well...I didn't choose the acronym, and I think it has been used for human powered vehicle since the early 80's, at least. So possibly even before Human Papilloma Virus was well known! So far the pedal powered variant it isn't spreading as fast, though :-)

Hpv

It's not spreading because there's a vaccine for it now.
