You learn something every day they say and today it is that US President George Bush loves to go mountain bike riding.
Bush who was in Slovenia for a meeting of the European Union received a Cult carbon hardtail mountain bike from the Prime Minister of the Republic of Slovenia Janez Jansa on Tuesday.
Both politicians are cyclists; Prime Minister Jansa spends some of his free time on a Cult bike – a Slovenian brand that was established 10 years ago in small town of Idrija. With new headquarters in Logatec. Cult is now one of best known and selling brands in Slovenia and for this reason it was also selected as a present for Bush. The president received a full carbon Black Gold XTR, a top level hardtail bike.
Bush started riding mountain bikes in 2003 after a knee injury from running. With good physical condition he quickly mastered the skills of mountain biking, doing most of his rides on the family ranch in Crawford, Texas or riding with guests at Camp David near the White House.
Lucky him I say – after all there are some advantages of being President!
