Several attorney-legislators will participate in a pedal-power exercise at the Democratic National Convention this week, including State Rep. Ana E. Hernandez of Houston, an associate with the Mostyn Law Firm, State Rep. Trey Martinez Fischer of San Antonio, of counsel at the Mostyn Law Firm, and State Rep. Rafael M. Anchia, a partner in Haynes and Boone in Dallas. The three attorneys and other Democratic Hispanic legislators from Texas will lead a group of Texas Dems on a bicycle ride through the streets of Denver on Thursday, according to a news release, to highlight the importance of physical activity in fighting diabetes, obesity and other health risks affecting the Hispanic community. The bicycles will be provided by Freewheelin, a project sponsored by health insurer Humana and Bikes Belong, a nonprofit. The group is setting up public bike-sharing stations in Denver and Minneapolis-St.Paul during the Democratic and Republican National Conventions to promote the health and environmental benefits of bicycling. This week, Freewheelin has set up seven bike-sharing stations in Denver, where anyone 18 or older can check out a bicycle.
