Senator Charles Schumer rides a bicycle

The U.S. Senator from New York, Charles Schumer, writes about exploring New York City by bicycle:
I find that there is no better way to learn about what is going on in New York than by riding my bike through the neighborhoods and stopping and talking to people.

I've loved riding a bike as long as I can remember. I can still recall every inch of the green Elswick racer I was given for my 10th birthday. Hopping on my bike as a kid was the definition of freedom, whether I was pedaling six blocks to the local basketball court, or roaming around the neighborhood looking for spontaneous fun.

WOW, an important politician pandering to the all powerfaul bike lobby. Does this mean we've arrived?
I think the next step is to get a few high powered, extremely expensive, name dropping lobbyists working for the bicycle community.

Pretty cool, huh? Schumer's the guy who pals around and rides bikes with Supreme Court nominee Sotomayer.
