Peanut points out some of the recent evil doings of that dastardly 'bike lobby' here.
Well, forget the local laneways and cycle paths of back-woods Manitoba or even big-city New York. The bike lobby has moved onto bigger things: world domination !
The Republican candidate for governor of Colorado gave an ominous warning to voters as the mayor of Denver launched something called B-Cycle, a network of rental bikes and supplementary program to promote things like showers at work for staff who may want to cycle in.
In an interview with the Denver Post candidate Maes warns that this as a step toward "converting Denver into a United Nations community" that "could could threaten our personal freedoms". For those not yet up in arms he points out that "This is all very well-disguised, but it will be exposed."
Maes later went on television to try to clarify his position with mixed results.
Be wary the bike lobby. Is it just a matter of time before they take over the galaxy ?!
