I love riding my bike. It’s not a dream bike, but it will do for now. I love the feel of sun and wind on my skin. I like to ride fast. I sometimes have the impression I am almost defying gravity. I like to smile when I ride my bike. I shock everyone by smiling at them. I am smiling at everyone and no one in particular–I am smiling at the world, life, myself. Riding my bike has helped me overcome a debilitating fear of driving a car. Now I  love it and drive with a smile! Such a miracle for me to be driving and  thanks to my bike. What other blessings are in store for me while I ride my bicycle?

I like wearing nice things while I bike. Not exactly skirts–they reveal too much when I’m speeding, but a nice shirt, nice jewelry, stylish shorts, effortless yet cute hairstyle. Do you ride a bike? What do you usually wear? What is your definition of cycle chic?

Happy Friday Everyone and Smiles,


This is my dream bike–in white and with a basket, looking elegant and casual at the same time. And retro.

    All those bikes are so lovely! I wish I could justify the cost. Man. So fricking cute.

  2. Marta says:

    yes, the bikes are pretty awesome-looking. i think that second-hand bikes are more affordable and that’s how I will be getting mine 🙂

    i think that white bike may be in memory of a cyclist who lost their life in that area, poignant comemorative.

    I love cycling, especially now the weather in Belgium is so very warm and beautiful. My dream bike is also of the retro variety 🙂

  5. Marta says:

    Lucy is right. Usually sprayed-white bikes are meant to be in memory of a cyclist who died. That being said, PLEASE wear a helmet. None of those photos show a helmet and it’s just not safe.
