so yesterday i was feeling a bit of melancholy and i thought "what makes me happy?" (beyond friends and family) and i came up with MY BIKE!
and i was thinking about the bicycle coalition of greater philadelphia event that i went to over the weekend and how i wanted to promote the great work they are doing and post some pictures of cute bikes, cute girls/boys on bikes, celebrities on bikes and a picture of my beloved bike and then...
BANG!! i get into a bike accident.
some guy opened his door on me and i went flying forward and my bike (and shoes?) remained in the middle of the road. luckily, my thighs and the front basket took the brunt of the trauma, but now i have horror movie looking bruised legs and a bruised soul for my beloved mode of transportation. luckily, there were some lovely strangers on the scene who jumped into action - this does not include the guy who "doored" me, he sat in his car the whole time.
so, to fight back the pain, i am still going to post some pictures and urge you to (1) watch for bikers! (2) ride your bike & (3) if you are in philly, support the bicycle coalition of greater philadelphia (or the biking advocacy group of your choice!)
on to the bicycle eye candy!
