Ron Paul rides a bike

Congressman Ron Paul, Republican candidate for president and physician, recently took a break from the campaign for a 12-mile bike ride. Ron Paul Takes a Bike Ride in N.H. — Sans Helmet, Of Course and Paul hits the bike trail:
Clad in snappy white matching Pearl Izumi bikewear, Mr. Paul said he “dared” his GOP rivals to break from the campaign trail for time on the bike paths.
There's a good chance the bike trail on which he was riding was funded by the Transportation Enhancement program, which Sen. Coburn recently tried to kill and which will be on the chopping block when the latest extension of the Transportation Bill expires in March 2012. Maybe Ron Paul can convince his son Rand Paul, who joined Coburn in speaking out against TE funding, that bike facilities are a critical part of our transportation infrastructure.
