Bicycle Lovin'




Ladies and Gentlemen, meet Rosie (pictured below), my fabulous little 1970s Sears and Roebuck "Free Spirit" three-speed. Complete with a rack on the back and glossy red paint, this is how I get around town. I love my bike--and all bikes for that matter! I snatched up this beauty off of Craigslist (gasp!) for $40. Sweetness. 


If you live near the square/campus (or hey, anywhere in Oxford for that matter), I highly recommend using a bike as your main mode of transport. And no, this is not just because I don't have an automobile (ok, maybe it is).  I know that lots of Oxford's elite greenies and Honors Collegians love them a good bike, but I aim to spread the bicycle lovin' to everyone else in town (or anyone else who feels inspired!). Let's take a cue from those fabulous Europeans. Good old John F. Kennedy once said, "Nothing compares to the simple pleasure of a bike ride" and I couldn't agree more. The fashion blogger, The Sartorialist, dedicates a section of his archives to sassy cyclists. Even Vogue agrees with me (here are their picks for the best bikes). Now the only thing I need is a cute hat and the perfect basket. Hmmmm...so far this one is in first place.


MK-the ultimate style maven herself- also chooses a two-wheeler (when she's not cruisin in the porsche).


OMG Jack Bauer


Republicans...


.....and Democrats like their bikes!


And so did the Beatles. Convinced yet?

You know who else loves bikes? Hipsters.

But they don't love bikes as much as I love you!
