Well, in case you haven't heard, Dave's car broke down. But I must say that I had gotten too spoiled on it anyway. Back in my early college years I used to ride bikes all the time, but as I've gotten older I've become to reliable on the automobile....
And since neither of us are magicians, Dave's car might be out of commission for a year or so...therefore time to break out the bikes! It felt good to ride around town again, IT WAS FREEING, now that summer is cooling off it's a lot easier to get around and not be drenched in sweat. This weekend we rode to the local theatre and caught Batman on a matinee, FINALLY GOT TO SEE IT AND IT WAS....AMAZING...but bittersweet. Now I will no longer make fun of my friend about crying at the last Harry Potter movie...it's so hard to say goodbye. I hope someone picks up the series and moves on with the Joseph Gordon Levitt story....somebody good...like a Coen Brother...or Aronofsky. Nolan created such a strategic universe...I hate to see it thrown away for ANOTHER REBOOT...:(
But I digress...
I really wanted to be cute on my bicycle...Calivintage is such an inspiration for cute biker babes..you don't always have to look like a messenger or that you're on the tour de france. The right shoe, and the right length of pant really comes into play here. Also my linen shirt was extra breathable so I wasn't sweating like a maniac. A small bag is easier to carry than a large tote (do we really need all that stuff?) And sure the beret wasn't necessary...BUT IT TOTALLY WAS. Layer my sailor pants with my sailor shirt, and watch out sailor moon, I'm riding to the stars! Truth be told, I don't miss the car as much as I thought I would.
