Barack Obama is Your New Bicycle

Looks like Obama is picking up speed in the picture above and with the Bicycle community. Here is one article about the swing voters. And another.

Still another is simply a PR game called BarackObamaIsYourNewBicycle and goes through a series of almost LOLCat statements about what Obama is doing with you, for you, near you, or beside you.....

Examples include "Barack Obama Saved His Dessert for You" or "Barack Obama Parsed Your Error." and more.

I think they are pretty hilarious, but at the same time I think it's someone hinting at the fame Obama has garnered over the past few months.....Nevertheless, it is great PR for Obama and another layer in the bicycle spin vote. Thanks to my boy John Prolly in NYC for the tip.

Hopefully Barack Obama will care about Bike People.....

via Obama's Energy Policy
"As president, Barack Obama will re-evaluate the transportation funding process to ensure that smart growth considerations are taken into account. Obama will build upon his efforts in the Senate to ensure that more Metropolitan Planning Organizations create policies to incentivize greater bicycle and pedestrian usage of roads and sidewalks, and he will also re-commit federal resources to public mass transportation projects across the country. Building more livable and sustainable communities will not only reduce the amount of time individuals spent commuting, but will also have significant benefits to air quality, public health and reducing greenhouse gas emissions."
