The Obama’s Vacation Day 8 ~ Biking in Martha’s Vineyard at Manuel F. Correllus State Forest and Golfing

Posted by: Audiegrl

President Barack Obama and the first family took advantage of brilliant New England weather Friday to go biking on Martha’s Vineyard. Under cloudless skies, the first family left their rented farm compound and motorcaded a short distance to a site near Martha’s Vineyard Airport. They then got on bikes for a ride in the Manuel F. Correllus State Forest, a 5,100-acre preserve boasting 15 miles of bike trails.

Later that day, President Obama golfed with Vernon Jordan and NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
