Obama Loves Riding in the City


From Urban Velo

According to a post on www.nicomachus.net, presidential hopeful Barack Obama took a break from the campaign trail to ride bicycles with his family and neighbors. The Illinois senator rode from his home in Chicago to the shores of Lake Michigan, but sadly their ride was cut short by foul weather.

And in related news, SRAM’s F.K. Day is hosting an Obama fundraiser at his Chicago home. An anticipated 100 bicycle industry magnates will pay $2,300 to attend the function. Although the upcoming election will focus on political issues such as foreign policy and the economy, Day is quoted as saying, “It’s really an opportunity to talk about bikes with Barack.”

Bush rides bikes a good bit. He has nice Treks. I don't think bicycle riding is correlated all that well with how good of a President someone will be.

I bet Hitler rode bikes. And Churchill probably mounted a Raleigh or two in his day.

I will not be voting for McCain in the fall, and I did not vote for him in the primary.

Oh that's right you are one of those Ron Paul people...by the way you know Ron Paul wanted to do away with the constitutional amendments if you do not know how bad of an ideal that is read the constitution sometime those amendments are very important
