Here's my bike!

Not really. I don't have it; I just like it. It's Trek's urban Lime bike. Designed to have broad appeal to non-bikers (like moi), it hides all those nasty, intimidating gears and sprockets and cranks and levers and pulleys. Good. I don't want to see that stuff. I also never go bike-riding, but this could be the machine that gets me to start.

Love the green color. It's similar to my Supercycle cruiser which I bought this April. I'm also a non-bike person and I got it purely for pleasure. On sale at Canadian Tire for $120! I'm still riding it a lot around the neighbourhood. Here's a pic. They even used it in The Nanny Diaries movie!

I like that the seat looks like a seat and not a torture device! The handle bars are normal too! I could wear a pretty skirt and a flowing scarf and ride this down by the beach. Well, that's how I imagine people ride this bike!

I love biking and it was brought to my attention to look into Electra bikes http://www.electrabike.com/cruiser/

They have cool cruising bikes...bikes with style. (Not that Trek isn't, I love their bikes. I have one myself.)

Good luck. Enjoy the solitude and wind in your hair without polluting!

Love that! I used to be a bike riding kind of gal, but not so much the past few years. But this bike, I think it could get me out there again. :)

Ha, someone shared this bike with me just tonight. I have been on the hunt for a new bike now that my 8 year old wants to ride everywhere. It looks great.

ooooo.... so cute! I wish I had the balance and the buff legs for a bike! By the way, love your blog!

I own the Hawaii Deluxe cruiser from Electra Bikes. It is a very sweet ride. But I have to say, I like that one quite well too. Happy riding. :)

ooh - that's gorgeous!

ooh looks like a dutch bike. just returned from the netherlands and really want one again. we lived there a long time ago and I had a great dutch bike. you sit straight up and it is so easy on the back and the tush. sigh...makes me want that bike you show too.

Oh, and it's a 'ladies bike' too. I stopped cycling after my last bike broke (literally in half) and it was impossible to find a model that you didn't have to fling your leg over. I need something I can hop off of when it wobbles.

I love it...but I wonder how easy it is to take the cover off when the chain inevitably falls off at some incredibly inappropriate time and you need to fix it... Or maybe that only happens to me...

Funny thing is, I just saw one of these out in front of Comstock, not even 10 minutes ago. Are you sure you aren't visiting Comstock right now? :)

I love this bike! It would totally motive me, especially if it had a cute little wicker basket on the front.

Hmmm... maybe I should paint mine and pretend it's this bike. That will get me peddling!

nice colors.

I love my bike, especially going around in the beautiful weather we have been having.

Cole, I WAS there, hiding in the bushes!
