Left Bank Bike

When I had a car I wasn’t one of those people who loved their car. And my car was certainly not an extension of my personality. But since I started biking, I’ve been looking for that perfect bike. One that’s like a best friend who completes your thoughts… and has two wheels.

Well, I’ve found that bike.

The bike is classic looking and rides like a Django Reinhardt songSomehow I find myself dressing in 1920’s inspired outfits (well, more than usual) and speeding around the left bank of Boston daydreaming it is a little more like a certain other left bank:

The bicycle is so lovely it seems to have a bit of a traffic calming effect.

And sometimes that creates a bit of a problem for an artist. Like when my bike kept me company at my recent open studio.

But, still, I wouldn’t be all that sad if more people fell in love with bikes.

Love it! I’m about to go through this as I’m heading down to Adeline Adeline and Rolling Orange Bikes in mid-June and I’m not coming back without my cadillac of bikes. Test driving the Work Cycle FR8, GR8 and Oma, Paper Bike, Azor Oma, Onderwater, Azor Long Trail and FietsFabriek.

I love my bike too :o) it is a smaller citybike with basket at front… and when I have flowers in the basket I feel like somewhere in France… daydreaming every ride :o)

Made my day — love the panel with Hemingway, Stein, et al hanging out with the modern cafe goers :)

My partner in Bike Friendly GR just left today for Europe with his girlfriend, so I’ll now have to ride the left bank of my little city while he rides the real one. I’ll take your positive outlook on riding the “wrong” left bank to heart!

Love your work!
