Are Bicycles a Plot to Surrender the United States of American to UN Control?

From Matthew Yglesias:

Are Bicycles a Plot to Surrender the United States of American to UN Control?: ""

One of the most unfortunate aspects of transportation policy in the United States is that it winds up playing as a “culture war” issue.
quoting the Denver Post
Republican gubernatorial candidate Dan Maes is warning voters that Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper’s policies, particularly his efforts to boost bike riding, are “converting Denver into a United Nations community.” “This is all very well-disguised, but it will be exposed,” Maes told about 50 supporters who showed up at a campaign rally last week in Centennial. Maes said in a later interview that he once thought the mayor’s efforts to promote cycling and other environmental initiatives were harmless and well-meaning. Now he realizes “that’s exactly the attitude they want you to have.”
