I Want to Ride My Bicycle, I Want to Ride My Bike

Cardinal Philippe Barbarin of Lyon Arrives at the VaticanHow great a photo is this?

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."
