Talking What Republicans think it's like to ride a bike

I'm sorry if this was already posted but you've got to watch this video created by the National Republican Congressional Committee. If this is what conservatives really think riding a bike is like it's no wonder they're so opposed to spending on cycling infrastructure.

That's okay.
I think they are a bunch of @#%$!!# hypocrites that want the government out of their lives but want the government in other people's lives.
Basically "freedom for me, big brother for everyone else".

hilarious to us... spot on to the SUV driving suburban residents this ad is targeted at...

it would take them an hour to commute to Sacramento via bike...

although within their suburb they could get anywhere within 15 minutes...

It reminds me of those infomercials where they make very simple tasks look difficult and messy as to glorify their product.
