Riding with Senator Tom George

Senator Tom George on an earlier ride through Detroit

Today I lead a Henry Ford bicycle tour for the Wheelhouse Detroit.

We had a couple unexpected guests: Senator Tom George and his son Matt. Senator George is running to become the Republican candidate for Michigan Governor. They were in nearby Milford this morning as Matt did the criterium race.

Although the polls aren’t in his favor, having Senator George in the top office certainly wouldn’t hurt the bicycling agenda — especially since he’s also a doctor who understands health and active living.

This was not his first ride in Detroit. The photo on the right is from an earlier ride.

It was his first ride on the Dequindre Cut and he was quite impressed.

We mentioned earlier that we suggested a Detroit ride with Congressman Pete Hoekstra — another cyclist running for Michigan governor. As of this posting, we haven’t gotten a response.
