Bike To Work Day and my new bike.

Bike To Work day, San Francisco-
More cyclists than automobiles on Market at Van Ness.

Also, I got this bike from Freecycle-
It's a folding Raleigh 20, the three-speed Sturmey-Archer hub is dated 11/78 and the bike has stickers from Simpson Cycles in London (which I plan on visiting next week). I changed the saddle, added the chain guard, since that was missing and added the rack, which is the correct one, just not the right size. It should be just above the rear fender. It's easy enough to fix that, but I'm running out of time to work on it, since I'm loaning it to a friend on Monday, so she can try riding for errands, without buying something right now.


Four folding bikes, that's not too many.
