Cycling has become a central part of my life. I have a strong emotional connection with my my bikes, especially Oma. I don’t know if this type of bike love is more common among women and their bikes, or if it’s common among men, too, or if it’s not common at all and I am abnormally attracted to my bicycles. Ha.
Regardless, I found a little something to honor this relationship that I can carry around with me all day, even when I’m stuck in my skyskraper at work.
I saw this post on My Hyggelig (a sweet and cozy blog) and simply had to follow the link to Makool Loves You (a sweet independent Portland designer) to buy the locket. I love the whole Makool aesthetic and wish I could wear clothes like theirs all day, every day, instead of business suits.
Now I have to order locket-sized photos of Oma and Smurfette. I don’t think most people understand what kind of cyclist I am when they learn that I ride to work everyday (imaging lycra, perhaps) so I’ll be happy to throw the locket open and show off my style of bikes, even if people think I’m a crazy lady (“What’s her deal?”).
