First Real Bike Ride in a LONG Time!

Monday, April 2nd, 2012

It’s been too difficult to post about biking when I haven’t been able to participate but yesterday I got to Bike with my Boys on a Brompton in Bois de Boulogne. I was thinking B-B-B as I sang with joy the whole time, and I was not the only one loving it!

I have a Backlog of posts to share, but wanted to share a photo with people I know would understand my elation!

Plan your French Cycling Vacation

Monday, February 27th, 2012

Sadly it looks like the English icon is greyed out here and I’m not seeing a link to English in the source code, but for those of you who read French, I’ve found a wonderful resource for finding all the bike paths and standard bike-friendly itineraries for adventures in France:

Les Véloroutes et Voies Vertes de France

We had previously just used green and white roads on the Michelin maps but now with Future Cyclist I’m feeling the need for a little more security on our travels. I’m looking forward to planning some adventures just as soon as we get our bikes over here, and a Burley trailer….

Velo Hollandais

Tuesday, February 21st, 2012

Having appreciated, but never desired to own, a traditional “Dutch Bike”, I’m all of a sudden obsessed and shopping compulsively. Perhaps it’s because I failed to win the antique Hirondelle I’d had my eye on. As so many people start cycling on a bike like this and then move on to “faster” bikes, I feel a bit backwards in my taste, but I must have a bike like this pronto! *Swoon*

To every thing there is a season.

Bobike Mini Weather Suit

Saturday, February 18th, 2012

I’m getting a Bobike Mini seat for my birthday and so shopping around for it this morning. I’ll let you all know what I think when it arrives. In the meantime, how cute is this integrated blanket? With the scarf thrown dashingly over his shoulder? I’m in love!

You don’t see this in Boston!

Friday, February 17th, 2012
Not many people have been biking in the cold snap that’s hit Paris. I spotted just a few folks out. 
Like the helmet debate, I’m going to leave the discussion of fur for another day and just say that this is a look I had not seen in Boston, but I’m happy to see someone out on her bike.
