bike to work day 2010!

Today is bike to work day!  I made the 6.5 mile trip on my trusty steed Paolo. Acquired in the late 90's by my brother from the New Orleans paper's classified section.  I took over ownership around 2005.  The bike is from sometime in the mid-80's according to people who know these things because of the elliptical gears (apparently a fad for a number of years).

Paolo makes the trip!
When I got Paolo (named for the frame manufacturer Paolo Guerciotti), I gave my hybrid bike to my brother Johnny to ride in SF (paying it forward sort of).  Although, that bike was promptly stolen in SF - the memory lives on.
