So do the secret service have to ride bikes with him? Must suck riding in one of those black suits huh.

And Grant Petersen would approve of his choice of handlebars.

It must easy to justify not wearing to your kids, though. “I’m the president–wear your helmet!”

That’s it—there needs to be a James Bond-ized bicycle. Retractable water bottle holder, retractable pepper spray/missile mount, rocket boosters, theft protection…..

In contravention of the rule that politicians shouldn’t wear hats, he sometimes does put a helmet on.

Apparently in conjunction with a tour of a biorefining plant in Missouri, in April 2010.

Politicians very often put on safety helmets at factories; it shows solidarity with the workers.

especially if required by OSHA in order to enter the part of the factory where actual work is being done by actual workers.
