Cycle Pretty

Pretty perky petal daughter called them beach cruisers.  
These bikes have fat tires, but I also think they do well on the paved paths, I have avoided the sand.
That's it, perky paved path petal bikes. 
I like the retro bikes in current colors.

That's a fun way to start a summer Monday in July. 

Any one up for a bicycle ride?

This kind of ride?

  1. I love bicycling. It is so liberating and freeing.

    I had the normal Schwinns with banana seats when I was a kid (a red hand me down from my brother, and then a blue hand me down from my brother. LOVED riding those two bikes. When I hit my teenage years I bought a 10 speed (can't even remember the brand, although I'm pretty sure it's still in my parents garage...30 years later). I rode it maybe 3 times. The last time I had a major accident (ok, not major but it was my excuse). I didn't ride again until I was in my late 20's. I bought a trek's a comfort/hybrid bike. I ride it primarily on the C&O canal. I'm HOPING to get a roadbike sometime VERY soon!

  2. Very nice array of pastel colors in those bikes! Love the mountain shot with snow! That's gorgeous!

  3. Hi Mary,

  4. Hi Mary,
    Thanks for stopping by.
    Glad you did. Please come back soon.

    The top of that mountain trail in one of your others posts is so impressive...that little red circle just puts quite the perspective on how far up it is doesn't it.

    The Bike is wonderful. Its really pretty.
    Wish I could do a really nice bike ride...I miss that.

    Hoping you have a wonderful afternoon.

    In Him,

  5. great bikes all in a row and love love the colors! enjoy your day!

  6. my first bike was blue and it was a girl bike but a boy color. that always bugged me. but, what bugged me more was that it got stolen right from our front yard - close to the front door - on friday the 13th in September --- in a rain storm. remember?

  7. I remember my first bike. It was white and blue and had fat tires. That was the norm in my day. Currently I have a twenty Five year Schwinn coaster/beach/fat tire bike in purple. Loved it! Hugs, Ginger

  8. Love those bikes. I don't have one, but have been considering getting one of the old style bikes. I would probably break something, though. lol

    My first bike was a blue Schwinn 3 speed. We lived 2 miles out of town, but we didn't have a car when my dad was at work, so I rode my bike into town to go to the library. I loved to read.

  9. Love the first photo of the bikes!! Would love to have a bike someday to enjoy beautiful rides!! Happy Monday! xo Heather

  10. Bikes take us back to the freewheeling days of our childhood. That's what I love about them.

  11. So much fun, my kids and I rides our bikes most of the times during summer time. Following you back, thanks for all your comments.

  12. I like that first photo. My husband and I want to start riding our bikes and get a little carrier of some sorts for M to come along...Hqppy Monday, Mary!

  13. My favorite place to ride is around Mackinac Island! They have the most comfortable old time looking bikes! Well being on the Island is like completely going back in time anyway...I love it there!

  14. Love them all ~ fascinating ~ especially love the colorful 1st photo ~ thanks for linking up with Magical Monday at (A Creative Harbor) ^_^ ~ Great photography!

  15. I "filled" my tires with air several weeks ago but have yet to get my A$$ on the dang thing. You inspired me to do so.
