Fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on how you look at it), the 
picture wasn't actually of him _on_ the bike, it was of him standing 
next to the bike, which was in what looked like a single-bike stand. I'm 
not going to post the picture to the list because of copyright blah blah 
blah, but it wasn't really that exciting.
As for your comments:
- Him listening to music on headphones while riding would probably 
explain a lot of the accidents he's gotten into while on the trail. 
"Hey, Mr. President! Watch out for that big... oh, whatever, you can't 
hear me anyway."
- Other articles say he mostly likes to ride on trails around his Texas 
- Kerry rides a $7000 road bike (when he's not being driven around in SUVs)
