Pedal Through the Conventions in Bus-Cycles

For all the squishy, closeness of the conventions, getting around is always difficult.
Public transport is a pain, Uber limos have a wait and, at least in Tampa, Fla., a $50 minimum. Your co-workers have bogarted the rental, and walking is for hobos and coastal elites.
Now there is!
The “health and well-being company” Humana has brought 20 “pedal buses,” which are powered by up to eight passengers and a driver, to the Republican National Convention. These bus-cycles will be pedaling around the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C., as well.
