Heard on the Hill: Brown Trades the Truck

Sen. Scott Browns 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 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.

Its more expensive than my truck, he told the cop. Its the one thing my wife lets me do.

A Brown spokesman says the Senator is gearing up for this summers Pan-Massachusetts Challenge, a two-day bike race that raises money for cancer research.
