It apprears that Noah Adams and quite a few others of the NPR staff ride.

Go to the iBob archive site http://search.bikelist.org/ and do a search on Noah Adams.

I wonder if anyone at Fox News rides. I have a hunch that Rush Limbaugh doesn't, or for that matter Michael Moore.

Is the implication that you are more correct as a Liberal or Conservative if you ride? Is that all it takes? Does this apply to us peons, too? If I ride more, am I more right?

Maybe we can talk President Bush into riding instead of running. Wait a minute, though, would that make him a Liberal?

I'm confused.

Board participants frequently complain of media bias (Liberal and Concservative bias). Yet sometimes we show some more civility towards one another because of the cycling connection. I thought that the fact some NPR staffers are avid riders may mellow our opinions of their views/work. I know in reality cycling has little bearing on one's political views, just look at Czar and Steam, but know about Mr. Adams did give me a warm fuzzy feeling.

Then I started wondering if any conservative media members ride.

I'd guess major-market media people tend to don't ride at all. The nature of their job has them indoors or in cabs. Broadcast celebs get free tanning hours and gym memberships.
