Mr. Quigley and his bike go to Washington

The newest member of the Congressional Bike Caucus, U.S. Representative Mike Quigley (D-IL) stopped by Rudy’s Cycle and Fitness in the 5th Congressional District on Saturday to purchase a bike for travel in Washington, D.C..

“There’s something wrong when we drive our cars to ride a stationary bike at an indoor gym,” said Quigley. “The 5th Congressional District sent me to Washington to fight to raise America’s environmental standards and to put an end to the practices that have led to global warming and that’s what I plan to do in Congress. But when I’m in Washington, I will fight to change America’s standards by riding my bike in place of taking my car.”
