Subject: Travel pool report #4 -- biking detail.

The pool got a very brief glimpse of the First Family as they whizzed past on bikes in slightly drizzly weather at around 11:42 pm The four family members, all wearing helmets, were preceded and followed by Secret Service agents on bikes. Sasha came first, followed by FLOTUS, Malia, and then POTUS, who yelled out to the press: "Hello everybody. Having fun?"

FLOTUS and the girls were wearing short sleeve shirts and dark pants. POTUS wore a grey-colored long-sleeved shirt and black pants, with blue-and-black tennis shoes.

Prior to the first family passing by, a jogger and a couple of other bikers were stopped briefly by agents who quickly wanded them and let them proceed on their way along the path toward POTUS. There were also several bikers and joggers in the area who seemed unfazed by POTUS's imminent arrival and simply headed on away from POTUS.

The scene was a wooded area in West Tisbury, which is in the middle of the island. The bike path was paved.
