|West Seattle Farmers market|
In addition to the usual assortment of fresh organic fruits and veggies I got a very pleasant surprise when I found strawberries today. We had a fairly warm spring which has put the strawberries about 2 weeks ahead of schedule, I'm not complaining.
One of the many things I like about riding or walking around my neighborhood is getting to see so many vintage bikes. I am not sure if my area has more old bikes riding around or if its just my finely tuned bike geek radar but I see them all over, especially when the sun comes out.
Today I saw a nice blue Nishiki in classic 10 speed configuration.
A few weeks I saw a lovely Peugeot mixte - a fairly common sight- with city bars
And a much less common Lotus Odyssey touring bike
I see alot of bikes, like the Peugeot mixte above that have been adapted for use as city bikes.
A nice Bridgestone with milk crate rear rack.
A Miyata adapted with city bars with gorgeous Ergon grips.
A Fuji Sports 10 with north-road riser bars.
And then of course like the Nishiki up top you get some classic 10 speeds relativity unchanged.
Univega Viva Sport.
Trek 720 a mid 80s touring bike with 531 tubing and canti brakes.
And it is possible to park your bike for too long....
Well I am going to go juice some of that lovely produce. As always.
Ride. Smile. Repeat.
