Comrades,

I write to you with bad news.

Just as our campaign to undermine American society was beginning to bear fruit in places such as Irvine, Minneapolis and even the Capitol of this society, our plot has been revealed.

From an article by the Capitalist Associated Press article:

Maes made the comments at a rally where he criticized Democratic Mayor John Hickenlooper's initiative to increase bicycling in the Denver through the bike-sharing program. B-Cycle allows people to use about 400 bicycles at dozens of stations around the city for a daily or monthly fee.

"This is bigger than it looks like on the surface, and it could threaten our personal freedoms," Maes said in comments that were first reported Wednesday by the Denver Post.

It's true. Our plan to undermine American Freedom through devious bike sharing programs has been exposed. I will contact Comrade Gandy in Long Beach to see that he can travel safely. I will also contact товарка Greuel and inform her to stop talking about bike share less she be exposed.

Do not worry about me. I will continue to try to push communist bucket bikes on an unsuspecting populace using my adorable child as a prop. If you need to contact me, send coded messages through the Bike Share Blog.

Yours in the Revolution,

D
