I recently got a new (old) Raleigh bicycle and I've been really enjoying it. A bike mechanic told me it was probably a European delivery bike from the early seventies. My friend, Sara, just bought a folding Brompton . Isn't it cute? (I wrote a post about folding bicycles right here). Several weekends ago, Sara and I participated in the Sunday Parkways where they shut down all the streets downtown so the bicyclists can ride freely. It was lovely riding down the middle of the street, ice-cream cone in hand! We snapped a few photos afterwards. Happy riding!

oh my gosh!! your bike is so cute, chelsea!! i didn’t know about sunday parkways–sounds like fun (especially involving ice cream)!
Oh how charming. Love the photos! And you’ve reminded me. I must get my bike fixed! I have a yellow 70s bike that I love, but it came out of storage last week a little bit the worse for wear. I am looking up bicycle repair places right now, ready for the onset of spring. Thank you.
how wonderful! you look lovely and happy!
love you’re new bike!
I am just chomping at the bit for a new (old) bike! Yours + your friends are adorable. I’m like you – anything will do! BUT, if I had my choice I’d purchase a beg bicycle. They’re darling : )
Adorable bikes! What a lovely idea to open the streets for the cyclists!
I love your bike…and that basket! I have a vintage bike from the 60’s and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I really need a basket like that! I ride on the sidewalk, too. But, they’re those grand Victorian paths…so plenty of room for everyone. The bike lanes by our house are really scary.
Super sweet bike! I love a bike with history.
AAaaaaaH! Adorable girls on bikes! I love your cutey bikes.
