For those who haven't been following the Washington State legislature lately, there's a Representative Ed Orcutt, ranking minority member of the Transportation Committee, who made an interesting comment in an email exchange concerning a $25 tax on bicycles that cost over $500.
Also, you claim that it is environmentally friendly to ride a bike. But if I am not mistaken, a cyclists has an increased heart rate and respiration. That means that the act of riding a bike results in greater emissions of carbon dioxide from the rider. Since CO2 is deemed to be a greenhouse gas and a pollutant, bicyclists are actually polluting when they ride.
I wonder if he was holding his breath while writing that email. Anyway, his Wikipedia page already reflects his moronic observation.
