Of course Barack Obama's riding a Trek and he is towing his children behind him but who's paying attention.

Well here's the good news, bikes are being mixed into the presidential campaign race, when is the last time that happened. 1896?

The League of American Bicyclists has now created a Rogues Gallery of public figures trash talking bikes. And the Denver Post has published the Freewheelin usage results for the Republican and Democratic Conventions. The verdict the Democrats took more bicycle trips but the Republicans clocked more miles per trip.
