One of their annual rituals on Martha’s Vineyard.
From the pool reports:
“The First Family is taking a bike ride through the Manuel F. Correllus State Forest in West Tisbury, MA.”
Motorcade was rolling from POTUS’s vacation place at 10:18am and arrived at the park about 10 minutes later.
POTUS, FLOTUS, Sasha and Malia briefly rode by pool, which was under a tree off of the bike path.
FLOTUS and Sasha appeared first from around a bend in the path, which winds through the woods. They were moving at a fast clip. FLOTUS wore white capris and a light blue tank top; Sasha had on florescent green shorts, pink sneakers and a pink helmet.
A few minutes later, POTUS and Malia rode by a little more slowly. POTUS could be heard talking to his daughter as they rode up to where pool – and a small group of people eager to observe – were gathered. Pool couldn’t hear what he was saying. POTUS addressed pool and onlookers as he rounded the bend. “Hey guys,” he said. “Nice day, huh?”
Reuters’ Jeff Mason asked “How’s it going?” and “Having a good time?”
“Having a great time, as always,” POTUS shouted as he pedaled away.
POTUS was in a blue short sleeve polo shirt and khaki shorts. Malia wore orange shorts and a blue T-shirt.
All four of them had on helmets. They were trailed by Secret Service agents on bikes. Several Suburbans in the motorcade then pulled onto the trail to follow.
Pool was brought back to the vans and is holding.
Lots of photo opportunities this vacation. Must not be an election coming up.
BTW, here’s some more video of Obama playing golf. This one, unlike the last, appears unauthorized and includes a look at how he swings an iron. Must have been taken by one of the locals using a phone.
