A Bike

I have a little dream to live in an area where I could ride a bike around town and not get run over. We can ride around our little neighborhood, but to actually try to make it to a shop would be a sure mishap waiting to happen.


I think this lovely basket would be perfect for the front of a lovely bike. I would carry fresh flowers and the milk that I forgot to pick up earlier.

If I had this bike though I could carry all my groceries plus the fresh flowers. How fun is this? I wonder if it is easy to drive though, because I must say I am quite smitten with the thing.

Maybe for now I can just hand out bike love to those who can ride them. These would be perfect for our vacation to Rosemary Beach this March. Now that is a bike community used to it's fullest.

I can feel spring coming right around the corner even if it did snow over the weekend, hence my love for bikes and fresh flowers. I will miss my boots, but I think I am ready for a season of dresses. Spring and summer minus the Alabama humidity would be nice though. I know my hair would appreciate it. I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.

Love the idea of tooling around town in a bike... not really feasible for me though either. I do love going on family bike rides. The basket would be so nice to have when you want to pack a lunch and picnic after a ride. too cute

This is definitely a dream we share with you. One of my son's first words was bike ("BI!"). We spent the weekend at a mountain biking race and I probably heard that exclamation a million times over while admiring all of the bicycles there. :) Happy Monday to you!

I have been dreaming of a bike with a basket for a long time. Hopefully this summer I will actually own one so I no longer have to dream. I am also eagerly awaiting spring to arrive. I am in anticipation for everything to bloom so that it can add its color to the world. Hope you had a good weekend too.

how beautiful is that basket! it'd be so lovely to have a bike to ride over the countryside, maybe a field of flowers :)

Vanessa said...

I live in Sweden (most of the time) and one of the nicest things is that everyone gets around by bicycle. And many people have that basket!

I love this basket! The basket and a modern or retro bike done in the Tiffany's blue box color would be my dream :)

sometimes I have the same dream ...just to live in a little beach town we could ride or walk to everything and just be calm ...nothing like LA.

Gorgeous blog!

I would definitely love to have a retro bike with that lovely white basket.

In the countryside somewhere =)

Oh, I have to say that I love living in a very bike friendly place. I have a little blue cruiser with a wicker basket--but that one is just so adorable that I may need to switch it out!:) Glad you all survived the snow!

love this dream. it is mine too actually! I think about it all the time. I used to bike to school on a western flyer(turquise)in NM. Loved those memories! We bike around our neck and its a big ole'deal to get out with a family of five! And I am tired after we set up all the bikes...before we go. My hubby & I bike while the kids are at school occasionally(highly reccommended)! FUN! xoxo

Tons of folks ride bikes here, although I do not. Drivers are suppose to share the road, however they don't always. I am so paranoid I am going to hit someone. Getting used to having to cross bike lanes to get into turn lanes takes some getting used to. When we lived in actually downtown though we walked everywhere—the movies, the grocery, restaurants, starbucks, the farmers market, the bank, the pharmacy, etc. I admit I miss being able to walk to all of those places!

That bike is too cute. I don't know how easy it would be to get around on it though. I don't have a basket on mine and it seems like every time I ride it I end up hurting myself some how, but I love to ride.

dwellingsanddecor said...

I know how you feel! I would rather walk on the roads here than ride a bike. I love those bike tags. So cool!

This is a really sweet post. Unfortunately I am an utter klutz on a bike. I'm forever crashing into corners and stationary things. I hope you're a lot better!
