The former congressman and newest mayoral hopeful took the big blue bike out for a spin yesterday, looking dapper in his slick shades and strangely flared pants. And look! He's cruising through one of the very bike lanes he once aspired to rip out. Here's a refresher, taken from a conversation with Mayor Bloomberg at Gracie Mansion in 2011:

Ah, yes, that's right. Perhaps Weiner has been chastened by his ordeal of the last two years—perhaps his decision to run for mayor signals the dawn of a new, more docile Weiner. Anything is possible. Now then, if you have what it takes (Photoshop, mad skillz, total absence of a social life) please send your best Weiner Photoshops to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we'll make a beautiful Weiner Gellery. (Here's the clean version.) Nothing raunchy, please. This is a family site. Besides, what you're thinking has already been done:
