I hope the rest of the G8 Summit
goes better for the president. Bush wasn't hurt; the status of the
presidential bike is less certain: "The presidential bike suffered some damage,
McClellan said, so Bush rode back to the hotel in a Secret Service vehicle."
Bush was wearing a helmet (it'd be inappropriate to speculate about why the
helmet). But did I hear on NPR that this is his second bicycle
spill in recent years? What the hell?

Maybe he's got clipless pedals that he's still learning how to use?
It's a perfect occasion for picking up a new bike, anyway. For the sake of his bicycling dignity (if there's any remaining), he could get something more rideable.
This guy was, allegedly, once a jet pilot?
Things that make you go Hmmmmm?
I've been rid'n bikes since I was a kid and am nearly as old da prez. Never had an accident, even with no hands while stand'n on the seat!
Can he chew gum & tie his shoes at the same time?
Don't know about the last one. He probably swallowed the presidential gum, too.
