I was just watching the Colbert report, and there was an interview with Congressman Blumenauer. They showed a bike in the background, maybe its his. Could not tell what make it was, but I would guess its a Trek 'Portland'. :)

Anybody know what the Congressman rides?

Not only is it a Trek Portland, but it's supposedly serial no. 1 off the line... It was to be presented to him as part of the presentation of the bike, but he bought it instead. It's really his...

Thank you for confirming my first guess. Its good to know that a Congressman has such a passion for cycling.

I'm moving to Oregon.:cool:

Blumenauer is probably the best friend cyclists have in the US Congress. IIRC he is a founding member of the congressional bicycle caucus. He has taken the lead on a lot of bike friendly legislation. We need a bunch more like him!
