Loving the Red, White and Blue.
Those are incredible photographs, especially the first one!
PS: Is your Brooks saddle honey or brown?
Thanks! The saddle is honey, though it looks a bit darker than usual in these pictures.
I love these pictures! They perfectly capture how fun and elegant riding a bike can be! You look wonderful for the 4th and I hope you have a fun day today! S.
Yay for riding bikes! You look lovely! Kudos to you for not being wearing spandex or sweats while riding.
Awesome photos. Your dress must keep you cooler in the Summer heat…
you look beautiful & radiant!
My heart is yours!
hi dottie. beautiful photo’s!!
i’ve been wanting to ask; chicago is a wonderfully flat city and the oma is really designed for flat cities and is a great replacement for a car so am wondering why you got a new bike (betty is beautiful too). are you retiring the oma? i saw on some old posts that you were in need of a new bike and wasn’t sure why so didn’t know if this new bike is replacing your oma. i don’t see as many posts about oma so wasn’t sure.
have a wonderful 4th.
Hi Melissa, I still ride Oma half the time. I got Betty for some variety, like when I want to go fast or ride over 10 miles or if the wind’s really bad (a harsh headwind is like a hill that never ends).
headwinds are brutal. love the idea of 2 bikes instead of a car. awesome!
Beautiful photos!! I have that same helmet, and absolutely love it!
Love your blog! Thanks for the link to my blogs, Urban Weeds and Frolic!
You’re incredibly chic with your bike. Love it!
You look adorable!
You look gorgeous! WHERE did you thrift that dress; now I’m regretting that we didn’t have/make the time to cruise the stores in Wicker Park.
At a thrift store in Wicker Park, actually. I can’t remember which one; it was three years ago with Tanya. We’ll hit them up next time you’re in town!
These pictures are inspiring!
love it– your very own photo shoot! both you & betty looking great. i just got a brooks saddle in honey for our xtracycle radish & soooo love the color.
freaking LOVE it! enter that int he topshop contest will you?!
Could you do a post on women’s bike helmets? I’m bored of my plain black one and looking for something more fun/stylish. So many of your photos feature helmet-free riders, but I am a helmet devotee (especially after seeing the helmet of a friend who had a bike accident. Her head was fine, the helmet was not.)
I’d love to see some helmet options– and more photos featuring girls with bikes and helmets!
I am currently trying to get a friend who is in Europe to check these Danish-made bike helmets out for me: http://www.yakkay.com/
Thats lovely! You look great. What kind of bike is this? Its too cute.
Thanks! The bike is a Betty Foy from Rivendell, a California company.
what a sweet vintage dress!
Beautiful shots – The epitome of Cycle Chic!
