Joe Biden Gifts Boris Johnson $6k Bike, Johnson Gives a Photo Printed From Wikipedia

President Joe Biden gifted British Prime Minister Boris Johnson a new, $6,000, custom-made touring bicycle and helmet at their first meeting on Thursday.

As part of the customary exchange, Johnson gave Biden a free-to-use Wikipedia photo of a British mural depicting Black 19th century abolitionist Frederick Douglass in return.

The two leaders met for the first time this week in Cornwall, England ahead of this weekend’s G7 summit. The summit also marks Biden’s first international trip since taking office.

British government officials decided on the photo after spotting it on Douglass’ Wikipedia page, according to a report from The Times of London. Johnson’s gift is reportedly a nod to the Black Lives Matter movement that has advocated for racial justice in both nations.
