Obama Meets with Bike Industry Leaders

Bikeradar.com has a great write up of the meeting Obama had with the nation's leading bike promoters, including Greg Lemond, Leah Day, and others...

Now that Obama has his own spoke cards, has committed a big fashion faux pas on his bike, attended the Women's Little 500, and has a site dedicated to him being your new bicycle, he is part of the hip bicycle crowd.

"Bikes Belong, an umbrella organization representing the industry, had its executive director Tim Blumenthal divert a few days of his French bicycling vacation to spend the evening with Senator Obama and several members of his Bikes Belong board of directors, who were granted a private 20-minute meeting with the senator."
