Sen. Scott Brownís most famous mode of transportation might soon be something other than his celebrated pickup truck.
The Massachusetts Republican recently has been spotted more often on two wheels than four. A tipster says he saw Brown on Monday exiting the Dirksen Senate Office Building wearing full-on cycling gear and pushing a bike ó quite a change from the beat-up old GMC truck that he made famous during his Senate campaign.
When a Capitol Police officer remarked on it, Brown told him about his hobby.
ďItís more expensive than my truck,Ē he told the cop. ďItís the one thing my wife lets me do.Ē
A Brown spokesman says the Senator is gearing up for this summerís Pan-Massachusetts Challenge, a two-day bike race that raises money for cancer research.
Following the speeches from elected officials, the crowd stands at long tables as they dig into BBQ, brunswick stew, cadillac rice at the Law Enforcement Cookout at Wayne Dasher's pond house in Glennville, Ga., on Thursday, April 17, 2014.
