West Point, Georgia and Bicycles???

Could someone from Georgia tell us why Kia Motors credits a bicycle for being in West Point, Georgia, a small town at the border with Alabama? We are hearing about it in a TV ad for Kias.

Thanks.

Kia started out as a bicycle manufacturer. I don't know if that has anything to do with it. Kia's parent, Hyundai, started as, and still is, a shipbuilder.

The same reason they always say the Pentagon is in Washington. Who knows?

The ad for Georgia makes sense if Kia made bikes. Have we seen any Kia bikes on C&V Forum?
