Bike initiatives tied to United Nations schemes

The City of Milwaukee 2010 Bicycle Master Plan may deserve a closer look now that we've been warned about the connection between cycling initatives and a United Nations plot.

Dan Maes, a Republican running for governor in Colorado, heroically raised red flags about the subversive elements of biking at a recent campaign rally, according to the story from the Denver Post. (Milwaukee-area cyclist Russell Jobs, no stranger to conspiracy theories, uncovered the story earlier today.)

Maes' bicycle baiting was directed at Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper, a Democratic candidate for governor, and an apparent supporter of U.N. sanctioned plots such as bike-sharing.

From the Post story: "This is bigger than it looks like on the surface, and it could threaten our personal freedoms," Maes said.

He added: "These aren't just warm, fuzzy ideas from the mayor. These are very specific strategies that are dictated to us by this United Nations program that mayors have signed on to."

Maes said in a later interview that he was referring to Denver's membership in the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives, an international association that promotes sustainable development and has attracted the membership of more than 1,200 communities, 600 of which are in the United States.
