President Obama took a bike ride with his family today in Aquinnah, on Martha’s Vineyard. The First Family cruised along Lobsterville Beach on a gorgeous sunny day but there was one glaring omission in an otherwise picture perfect tableau – the president was not wearing a bike helmet.
White House spokesman Bill Burton said he did not know why the president was not wearing a helmet because he generally does.
“He supports the wearing of bicycle helmets,” Burton said.
