I have had a very bicycle themed weekend!
Last night Jamie and I hosted a 'Tour de France' party at our home. We invited two couples over who we know are fans of the Tour. I cooked Julia Child's Beef Bourguignon, had Edith Piaf playing, and laid a table with white linen and candles. It was a fabulous evening with much talking and red wine. I honestly do not know how the French get anything done. The meal was delicious and coupled with a glass of wine, I was ready to fall asleep!
In an effort to live greener I am considering riding a bike to work when I begin my new job. My new office is fantastically close to home, literally a 10 minutes drive from my front door, and I am hoping there will be somewhere I could leave my bike safely during the day (perhaps in the office?).
I am in love with the cruiser step through styles of bike, especially ones with a retro feel to them. They are surprisingly comfortable to ride and not too heavy to handle. These two are my favourites, but I am leaning towards the first one (lucky for Jamie as it is much less $ than the second).
