I Want To Ride My Bicycle, Bicycle, Bicycle

There is an open air market a few blocks over from our new house about once a month. We went this past weekend to grab some local honey (GREAT for allergies!) and while we were there we spotted this bike for sale by a nice gentleman that repairs old bikes...



Nathan bought it for me...but I had to ride it home. I'm not sure I've been on a bike at all in the past 15 years, but I made it the 5 blocks home (would have been 3 if I had remembered to turn at the soccer field like I was told!).



And I did it in heels.

Silk tank, Buffalo Exchange
Velvet leggings, Target
Ankle boots, Dansko

So not fair. I've been obsessively checking craigslist for months for a bike just like that one, and you find one just like that! Totally envious!
Please, please, please share the market's location! I'm now dying to go.

I keep meaning to try honey for my allergies, but I always forget.

That's so cool!
I fell in love with a beautiful bike a few weeks back now. It was about $300 though, so it's gonna be an unrequited love methinks.

I love riding bikes. It does take a bit to remember how to do everything at once--brake, change gears, ect, but it does come back. There is nothing like being on a bike to make you feel young again!
