Coolest thing I saw today

Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

Someone was moving their apartment via pedicab! Lots of boxes labeled “kitchen” and stuff. No photos though, my hands were full.

Stay safe out there, lots of inexperienced drivers at the wheel of very large moving trucks.

New Mixte on the Block

Thursday, August 25th, 2011

This mixte has moved into my neighborhood. I’m loving all the chrome, the VO double-hammered fenders in particular, and the stitched leather handgrips. I’m definitely doing that next time I re-wrap my bars.

The cloth tape protection is a nice touch!

I’m tempted to leave a note saying this bike is too sexy to spend the night outside. We’ve had a lot of bike thefts recently. My husband commented that he hopes it’s not another of those “boyfriend builds his girlfriend the perfect bike but she doesn’t fully appreciate the effort” stories. Hmmmm.

Family Cycling in Montreal

Monday, August 15th, 2011

No, it wasn’t us, though I wish it were! My friend J sent this inspiring photo from her vacation. I am working on a longer post in this vein, but everything takes so much LONGER now.

Hope you’re all having a great cycling summer!
