John Edwards: Silky Pony now roadie
Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards squeezed into a pair of Spandex bike shorts today and pedaled on the RAGBRAI route with champion cyclist Lance Armstrong.

Look, I ride my bike on the road and on bike paths too, so I can't be too critical. However, "roadie" is a state of mind, and one that I thankfully don't have. It's no surprise that Edwards would fit right in with the "lifestyle".
