The more I think about it, you can’t blame our president for the epidemic of obesity among young people. He is a good role model for physical fitness. The president jogs, rides his mountain bike regularly, and clears brush at his Crawford ranch.
Anyone who rides a mountain bike is alright, in my book.
A couple years ago a writer for USA Today went for a ride with the president. According to the author, “the truth about the Biker-in-Chief is that the man can really ride.”
The article also said the president’s fitness level as rated as being in the top 1% of men in his age group. (USA Today 8/13/2005 here).
