Mayor Miller gave a congratulations to Michael Barry for reaching the Tour de France via a video on Veloo Media. (Congrats Michael! It's not often a Torontonian makes le Tour. Listen to his interview on CBC Radio)
And in a smooth segue (or at least as smooth Miller can do it) he pulls out his own competitive "touring" bike, the blue Bixi Toronto: a slick, aluminum, 3 speed bike with balloon, puncture-resistant tires, easy-adjust seat, bell and basket. What more could you want or need for $5 a day? And it's hopefully coming here in 2010.
