Over the weekend, Seattle P-I columnist Joel Connelly traveled to Bend (175 miles SE of Portland) to cover Sen. Barack Obama’s campaign visit.
In a column he published this morning, Connelly wrote:
Sen. Barack Obama talked wistfully about taking a bicycle ride in the high Oregon desert, but plunged back into what is both a victory lap in the Democratic race and the warmup for a long general election campaign.
I haven’t been able to confirm if he actually went on a ride, or if he was just fantasizing. Did any readers from Bend see Mr. Obama pedaling around?
And, in other Obama bike news, I noticed this funny “ZooBama” graphic on Flickr this morning. It was uploaded by Felix (a regular Zoobomber and BikePortland commenter) and created by an artist named Jason whose work you can see more of here.
