transportation tuesday: bike

n.b. this is a week long series on methods of transport and how we feel about them, created by a dear friend. 

my husband does not want me to get a vespa because he is convinced i will crash it – although for the record i am an excellent driver and can give you references if you need them. it’s the other drivers we worry about. anyway, i have a friend who has a green one and she told me once that her scooter was the only freeing thing she had in her life. that kind of freaked me out, but i can understand where she’s coming from. the wind in your hair and that giddy feeling of joy, when there’s no one around, no sound except for you (and truly no sound if you’re on a bicycle!), no obligations to complete and no place to be. just you and the road. how depressing is it when the ride comes to an end?

i suppose you don’t need to worry about it when your bike is on your cutting board, or your stationery.

    nice. i also fear the vespa mode of transportation. it is so cool looking, i know for certain i would fall off or stall it in traffic, or something worse… looking totally uncool 🙂
