The 43rd President Of The U S of A posted a couple of pics and a video on his Instagram page of him mountain biking on his 70th birthday around his Texas ranch.

George W Bush is a mountain biker. It may not be news that you want to hear – or spread around – but good ol’ Dubya likes to shred dirt.

In the week that his old pal Tony Blair was dealing with the publication of the Chilcot Report, Bush spent his 70th birthday riding around the grounds of his ranch in Crawford, texas with a group of war veterans.

Bush confirmed to reporters that he has not read the Chilcot Report yet.

Looks like George W Bush rides a Trek 29er.

Thanks to our vets for your courage, your sacrifice, your example — and for coming to the ranch to ring in the old man's birthday on the trails. #43turns70

Warning: the above Instavid features “singing”.

There’s no pics or video of any crashes so maybe Bush’s bike handling skills have improved since his 2006 crash in Scotland where he was unable to “pedal, wave and speak at same time” which resulted in some nasty looking grazes.
