My wife and I went on a bike date to VQ recently. Although it wasn’t the first time we’ve gone on a date on bicycles, it was the first time I’ve locked up my Brompton.

Check out The Prudent Cyclist to find out why we had to lock our Bromptons outside.

Bike date!

Piet was impatient with my attempts at documentation. Anything for a chance to win a Batavus in the Let’s Go Ride a Bike Summer Games.

Story: We’re finally getting some spectacular weather here in Michigan, so after we got home from work on Friday we were still itching to ride our bikes some more. I thought, "Bike date!" ran off to put on some earrings and fancy shoes, and we biked to Ben and Jerry’s for ice cream. After the ice cream, we encountered a random gang of cyclists zooming around. We didn’t recognize any of them, which was weird, and it turns out they were all from out of town visiting. We joined their gang for awhile and made a haphazard loop around campus. It was totally spontaneous and fun, but I had trouble keeping up on my lazy commuter bike, so after awhile we gave up and had a leisurely pedal home.

    [http://www.flickr.com/photos/51758282@N02/] They can be a little bit more than standard saddles but if you care for them properly they’ll last a lifetime. And thankfully they’re not quick release so I don’t worry too much about leaving them outside.

    A classic shot.
    I wonder what it would look like in BW with Sepia toning?

    nice, quiet shot — good light in this.

    makes me want to sit down on the stairs (and yes, even after four years of not smoking, have a smoke…)
