Spotted: Chu Marks Bike to Work Day
Energy Secretary Steven Chu joined other D.C.-area bikers in marking Bike to Work Day today at Freedom Plaza in Washington, D.C.
Chu participated in an effort to highlight the Obama administration's commitment to reducing American dependence on foreign oil and in support of clean and alternative energy sources, including cleaner modes of transportation.
Bike to Work Day is sponsored by the Washington Area Bicyclist Association (WABA) and Commuter Connections. More than 7,500 cyclists were expected to participate today at 26 different locations across the D.C. region, with 1,500 bikers this morning at Freedom Plaza.
Getting down to business later in the day, Chu attended the National Coal Council meetings in Washington and announced the administration will devote another $800 million to the Clean Coal Power Initiative.
