30 Before 30 - Mama's Got a New Bike

Another Birthday, another year closer to 30.  My birthday weekend was full of fun, friends and celebration - followed by the inevitable naps and relaxation required.  Not wanting to slack on my 30 Before 30 list, I asked for a new bicycle as a birthday gift.  This bike is everything I had wanted for the summer, and I can't wait to take it out for long bike rides by the lake, or to stuff the adorable basket full of picnic materials.  Read on for additional photos and bike details.

The bike is the Mercier Elle City model, ordered through Bikes Direct.  I was in a frantic search for a vintage step-through bike that would be practical for riding (at least 3 gears) and wouldn't hit the wallet too hard.  I can honestly say that I couldn't be happier with the end result.  After this season of riding, I may look to upgrade the handlebar grips, seat and maybe change the wheels but for now it's perfect!

Even Fritz enjoyed a ride!

Hope you had a fantastic weekend!

  5. I've been wanting a cruiser bike for so long, that one looks perfect! If only they weren't so expensive for something I'll only get to use for 5 months out of the year.

  6. Your correct hand is in charge of two noteworthy capacities in motorcycling - quickening and braking. In the event that you turn the throttle by winding the correct hold toward you, you apply throttle and give it 'gas' to the to release a ratchet strap
