So Take A Ride With Me..

Before the kids, Betty and her husband would pack a picnic and take their bicycles for a spin. With her red cruiser she was ready for a beach trail or woodsy ride. These romantic weekends were among her favorites.

The summer may be almost over, but it's not too late to enjoy a weekend ride on a retro bike. You can easily find vintage cycles on craigslist or a wonderful reproduction. Betty recommends the two listed below. She loves the simple design of the Micargi Tahiti and the 21 speeds on the Giant Suede GX W.

  1. Betty,
    Spent some time riding bikes on the beach this summer in Siesta Key and that was so much fun. Also did some riding with the neighborhood kids around our suburban hilly town. I don't have a retro or vintage bike; my bike is a Target special, and it does the job. Anyways, thinking about taking a nice ride when the leaves change.
    That will have to be in between making pottery for the fall season!
