Better than a Prius, even

There was so much good about Sunday's Bike Newton rally, it's hard to know where to start. And, we're not going to limit ourselves to just one post.

So, let's start with Laura Farina of Farina's Bicycle Center giving the city, through the mayor, a brand new bicycle to be made available to city workers off on short trips. It was a wonderful contribution by a local company. (I promise. A post on local bike shops is coming.)

Left to right, that's Bike Newton organizer-extraordinaire Lois Levin, hizzoner, and Laura Farina.

After some Dukakis-in-a-tank-like problems with a helmet, the mayor took possession ...

and a test drive.

Keep in mind, he promised not to run for mayor in '09. He didn't say anything about riding.
