Arnie on a Share Bike

Just spotted this as it popped up in the Twitter feed. Arnold Schwartzenegger (he of the multiple Hummers, yes, but also he of the proposed electric car infrastructure) riding along in London, with Mayor Boris Johnson, on "Boris Bikes" - their version of BIXI (actually Barclays Cycle Hire.)

Just saw Arnie and the Mayor of London ride past, on "Boris Bikes" - Imgur

Gotta say the Governator looks pretty good on a bike: wobbles less than His Mayorship at least. And 6000 bikes in London is pretty good. Makes our 100 look kind of sad. (Then again, having watched the Top Gear cross-London race, I don't know if I'd want to take one of these through central London's traffic. Eek!)

  1. Arnold for President - maybe he should come up to Canada and become PM (we have no 'Born in Canada' requirements for PM).

    Come to think of it - I have never seen Harper on a bike - although I have never seen Elizabeth May on a Bike either... I assume they must know how to ride a bike - although not quite as well and with such style as the Governator.
