City Biking: Living to tell the Tale

Let me begin by saying I think this is going to be my new obsession! It was very frightening at first when taxis were passing me about 2 feet away, but then it just became pure fun.

So we picked up our bikes, and the first thing i noticed was my eyeball bell?? Still trying to figure that one out

this was my bike...cruiser And its made in Germany (I love German Engineering)

so we headed up Park search of a truck with free coffee

after many bell ringings. "Oh My Gods", "What should i do"...we finally made it to our original destination. Voila free coffee truck

we made our way across town hoping to reach the Westside Highway with its infamous biking path. 

After fearing we were in the lane to go through the lincoln tunnel, we did make it to the Westside Highway. It was so nice

views of river were amazing

with the city behind us

From there we headed down to Bleecker, perhaps my favorite street.

what could be better than biking on a West Village street surrounded by some of your favorite stores such as Ralph Lauren

needless to say, the helmut really cramped by style....


  1. LOL, love the helmut!!

    Great pics....

    I would have been terrified, lol, as I know I was just trying to cross the stree!

    You couldn't get a LV one:)

  2. That looks like so much fun, but I would have been scared to death! At least you made it to heavenly Bleecker and, as I call RL, home.

  3. wow -- such fun!! glad you wore a helmet, though. i was SO nervous for you!!

  4. Braver than I! The day looks like it was tons of fun!

    BTW, found a new Southern Food obsession for you:

    It is amazing...I had it for mid morning snack and lunch (which sounds way worse than it actually is...this stuff is delightfully low carb!) Very heart and soul Southern!

  5. You're brave!!! Looks like fun though!!!

  6. Hey :) Can you please help me pick which dress I should wear tomorrow for a semi-formal dance? I have no clue!

  7. i'm impressed! as you know i'm a cycle fan and have always loved bike rides as well, but i don't know if i'd be brave enough to bike through the big city!

  8. I love it! What a fun outing. The eyeball bell does creep one out a bit, doesn't it? Like someone is watching you at all times. Hmmm....

    So glad you didn't get taken out by a taxi, and can't wait to hear about your next adventure!
