New obsession brewing. This one involves wheels rather than heels. After much deliberation, I’ve decided to give my 20-year-old classic Schwinn Cruiser (boy’s/blue) with its cantilever frame to my sister since she lives at the beach. Our father has beautifully refurbished it for her—gorgeous new seat, grips, basket—and is bringing “Moondoggie” (so named for Gidget’s boyfriend) down to Claire in a couple weeks.
And so the hunt for my next ride begins. Here’s what I know I want. A lightweight ladies hybrid or city bicycle with a rear carrier on which I can attach a child seat to pedal not-so-Tiny G around town. I also want need a Brooks honey leather seat real, real bad.
And a bell. And a wicker basket.
