Earlier this month, Spokane City Councilman Jon Snyder retained his seat in an election that saw the council move a little to the left.

During his campaign, Snyder ran ads that featured the outdoor-loving councilman making his way through the city by bike.

To celebrate his victory, Snyder is back on his bike, and with help from local advertising firm Boom Creative, made a shot-by-shot recreation of Matthew Modine's epic run through Spokane from the movie Vision Quest. The noticeable difference, of course, is that Snyder is on a bike. Well, that and he's not Matthew Modine.

Here's the Snyder clip:

And the original -- you have to fast-forward through 2 minutes and 50 seconds of awkward dialogue and high school wrestling to get to the running scene.
