What luck that the 4th would fall on a Sunday this year. Not only did most of us 9-5ers get an extra day off - it was , by default, one deliciously Californian Cycle Chic Sunday!
Now I know this scene is de riguer in many cities .. but to see such a brilliant and robust display of bikes in my home town is something reserved for 3-day weekends and summer holidays.I must take time to revel in it!
It was neat to see how most of the gals coordinated their outfits with their bikes!
I wish I would have snapped a picture of the purple sequins tricycle - driven by a woman in a purple sequined dress - carrying a big black dog with a purple sequined collar.
We spent a majority of the day lounging on the grass at our friends BBQ. I think everyone at the party arrived by bike - even the parents.
One of my girlfriends even showed up in a patriotic blue mini dress and lovely matching espadrilles - she just so happened to ride up on the white bike with the colorful stripes and blue rims!
I hope all my fellow Yankees out there had a fun and bike filled fourth!
