Cute Cruisers

No Comments   Posted by gretchen |  Category:Inspiration, Sweet Rides

On our road trip last month, we were able to stay with our dear friends in Southern California for a few days, who were gracious enough to indulge my need to sight see. We hit up Old Town Pasadena, which is a great place to window shop, and walked into a pop up shop for Linus Bikes.

I was immediately taken with the clean lines and classic colors of these Venice, CA made bikes. It was hard to turn down a test ride around the block, and even harder to not impulsively buy one on the spot! Our friend Frank even offered to lend us his bike carrier for the 24 hour drive home. Alas, practicality won out in the end (they ARE sold in our area), but I’ve had cruisers on my mind ever since. Do you ever imagine yourself pedaling down the road with a smile on your face and a wicker basket filled with pastries and fresh flowers?

I’m also taken with the fashion label bikes that have been getting attention over the last few years (and a classic tandem to boot!).
