The ne plus ultra cycling president, Woodrow Wilson was a member of the CTC and went on several long cycletours (before he became president).

The helmet unstrapped is a bit funny.

I don't really care what his bike of choice is. It is quite likely something he personally purchased and not a government purchase (which may not be legal). Toe clips indicate that he likely has been riding for at least half a century. I don't know any octogenarian (almost) that wakes up one morning and decides it is time to learn to use toe clips.

And, I'm not surprised that he isn't riding a Trek Mad-One.

It might be nice if he would choose to showcase a made in the USA bicycle (I doubt his Trek was made in the USA). There are a number of small to mid-sized brands out there that would love to have him riding their bikes.

We may well even have enough components made right here in Oregon to build a bike, or most of it.

Former guy would need a crane to lower him onto the bike.

Since people can't stop themselves, I'm closing this for further review by the mod team
