Getting around...

I usually cycle to work but in the past few months, because there has been parking available at work and because the weather hasn't been too great, I have been really lazy and have been taking the car...boo to me on all fronts...however, we are moving to a new location at the end of September which we are all looking forward to (I work for an architectural practice and we have designed a great new building for ourselves - of course, we might not all make it there what with potential redundancies etc..boo again!)...I digress...so, once we move, there will be no parking at all so I will be back on the bike. My bike is fine and I definitely don't need a new one but, if I did, wouldn't I like one of these? Yes, I would...so cute - from the Electra Bike Co (designs by Alexander Girard).




So, I don't need a new bike BUT am seriously thinking about a Vespa...can't afford one right now but if things pick up, I think this just might be the way to go for me...have checked out the various models and quite fancy this one...nice, right??

Oooooh . . . a Vespa would be very cool. I saw an orange one last week that made me swoon. The one you've pictured here is very nice, too. What a way to get to work! You'd be the coolest kid on the block!

My guy got a scooter, an Aprillia, this year, and it's the best big ticket item we could have possibly gotten. It's really perfect for city cruising. You never have to pay or look for parking, and you can zoom up alongside unmoving lanes of traffic. It also costs next to nothing for gas and insurance :)

Biking is always so much fun and you see so much more than out of the car. These bikes are adorable!

The bikes are super cute but the vespa - ooh la la! Just the thing for getting to work on I'd say... :)

Vespas are positively swoonworthy! Please do purchase one! :)
