Beware the Velo-Nazis

In a previous post, I may have implied that Dan Maes, currently the frontrunner in Colorado's Republican gubernatorial contest, might be unelectable.  Perhaps that was unfair of me.  Perhaps I should give him the benefit of the... wait, what's this?
Republican gubernatorial candidate Dan Maes is warning voters that Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper's policies, particularly his efforts to boost bike riding, are "converting Denver into a United Nations community."
"This is all very well-disguised, but it will be exposed," Maes told about 50 supporters who showed up at a campaign rally last week in Centennial.
Maes said in a later interview that he once thought the mayor's efforts to promote cycling and other environmental initiatives were harmless and well-meaning. Now he realizes "that's exactly the attitude they want you to have."
"This is bigger than it looks like on the surface, and it could threaten our personal freedoms," Maes said.
Never mind.

He's right. Bikes are a gateway program. In fact, every day when I swipe by 26Euro/yr membership card across the sensor at the public bike-share station 30 yards from my house, and head off on my city-provided three-speed, I think "well, at least if I crash this thing, I have free health care."
