I Want to Ride My Bicycle, I Want to Ride My Bike
Cardinal Philippe Barbarin of Lyon, France, parks his bicycle as he arrives for the fourth day of general congregation meetings in the synod hall at the Vatican on March 7. Chicago Tribune religion reporter Manya Brachear had a bit of fun with it by tweeting:
"I love that Lyon’s Cardinal rides bike to Vatican. I’d love it more if he traded briefcase for basket with baguette."

The Purest Bicycle Rider
by Trent Gilliss, senior editor
How many of us have passed by a stranger on the street or sat near a person on a bus or a train so many times but we’ve never really known much more about that person than the judgments and stories we’ve created in our heads? For some Bostonians, this documentary makes that introduction. The film does a lovely job of introducing Louie the bike rider and shows you his passion for one thing — riding bicycle.
If any of you Bostonians see this, comment or drop us a line if you recognize Louie. I’d love to hear what you think.
