Converted a neighbor!

I went back to my old neighborhood yesterday and spotted the girl who lived up stairs on a cannondale hybrid and this orange/red timbuk2 messenger bag and thought that was pretty cool. I always used to bump into her in the hallway while I was carrying my bike back when I lived there and she always took the subway. Glad to know she picked up my habit.

Good job, you must have set a good example.





A girl that you used to "bump into". Are we supposed think this has anything to do with cycling?
