Single Rose

April 1st, 2010

Rose on a red bikeSpotted parked in the South End, you know I smiled when I saw this racy-looking chromed red singlespeed, with a rose on the handlebars.

I imagine the person who rides this bike – probably someone who is usually a speedster, but was given this rose-ring by someone dear to them and so s/he abandoned the minimalist aesthetic to keep it close, there on the handlebars.

Or maybe it’s a conscious reminder to ‘stop and smell the flowers’?

Whatever the story, I love flowers on bikes in general, and the dichotomy of this mental image in particular.
