Minna's got a brand new bike!

It's a Novara (REI) Transfer -- a slightly retro "urban" bike with a seven-speed internal hub (like the old English three-speed bikes, but with seven gears) and that has a comfortable upright riding position (as well as fenders, a chain guard to keep your pant legs from getting greasy, a rack for carrying cargo and front and rear lights that get their power from the wheels turning so you can ride any time of the day or night).

I actually got to ride it before Minna (the UPS guy came with it while she was at yoga!), and I found it pretty fun.

It was also fun just following Minna around and taking some pics on her first ride. I kinda like this one, too.
