The Daily Beast‘s David Sessions might be kidding. But he wrote today:
Obama confined his first-term biking to a cozy comfort zones: leisurely rides while on vacation with his family, with helmets. But we all know he’s an athlete at heart—good enough that he can impress Tiger Woods with his golf game. So why not ramp up the cycling in the second term by spending a little time with Lance Armstrong, an intense route with the man who’s won the Tour de France more times than anyone in history? Sure, Armstrong was buying all those yellow shirts with illicit performance-enhancing drugs and self-righteously lying about it for years. But Obama’s never running for office again, so he can take off and leave the moralists in the dust.
