Bike vs. BAT a GOP joke
That fun bunch in the Alachua County Republican Party has dreamed up a lunchtime diversion for this Friday -- a bike vs. BAT (big-ass truck) race around Gainesville. They're poking fun at their mayor, Craig Lowe, who held a car vs. bike event back in May. Lowe was elected by a 42-vote margin last year in a non-party election after three terms as a city commissioner.
