Some Bikes of Cairo

All photos of this post: Starr Brainard
My niece sent me these photos of bikes in Cairo (yes, some of them should technically be called tricycles).  She mentions that "Biking might not be stylish or institutionalized in Cairo, but when it surfaces biking is very functional and practical; of the people and for the people."

Cycling in Cairo!

My niece is currently attending classes at a university in Egypt and she sent me the above photos of a man cycling in Cairo.  I'm hoping that she and her friends in Egypt will send me many more cycling photos and maybe even some cycling videos from that part of the world.

A Bicycling and Walking Paradise - The Stone Arch Bridge in Minneapolis

The Stone Arch Bridge is an old railroad bridge that crosses the Mississippi River and it has been converted into a bicycle and walkway bridge with no civilian automobiles allowed. Various festivities are also held on the bridge. The above pictures show the bridge on a beautiful autumn day. (Click on photos to enlarge them.) To see additional views of the Stone Arch Bridge click here.
