Are “Free” Bicycle Schemes are UN Plot to Enslave Citizens?


Well according to a post in the Bike Blog at the Guardian they are according to Dan Maes, the Republican frontrunner to challenge for the position of Governor of the state of Colorado in the United States. The free bicycle schemes being referred to are the likes of the Melbourne Bike Share scheme and theVélib scheme in France.

To give you a taste of Mr Maes thinking, here is a little quote from the Guardian posting:

Dan Maes, the Republican frontrunner to challenge for Colorado’s governorship has discovered the truth about such cycle schemes: they are a grand United Nations plot to enslave the US.

“This is all very well disguised, but it will be exposed,” Maes told supporters at a campaign rally.

“This is bigger than it looks like on the surface, and it could threaten our personal freedoms. These aren’t just warm fuzzy ideas from the mayor. These are very specific strategies that are dictated to us by this United Nations programme that mayors have signed on to.”
