Standing out in the mist of 3-piece suits and briefcases on Capitol Hill last Friday, comedian Stephen Colbert was spotted pedaling a pink bicycle through the halls of the Longworth House Office Building and as it turns out, he apparently still needs his training wheels.
What started out as innocent fun ended tragically when the comedian collided with a trashcan. Kids, do not try this at home.
But don’t worry— he was wearing a helmet.
Thankfully, NBC News producer Frank Thorp was able to snap a quick pic and upload it to Instagram as seen to the left.
Colbert wasn’t just at the House for a leisure bike ride, but was filming with Rep. Matt Cartwright (D-Pa.) a segment of “Better Know A District” for Comedy Central’s “The Colbert Report.”
He was also seen throwing a pigskin in the Cannon House Building with Rep. Donna Edwards (D-Md.).
Lucky for Washingtonians, Colbert will be back soon, but this time to help campaign for his sister, Democrat Elizabeth Colbert Busch who is running for South Carolina’s first congressional district against former South Carolina Republican Gov. Mark Sanford.
Let’s hope Colbert tries rollerblading through the White House next time he’s in town.
