I Want to Ride My Bicycle: 8 Cool Bikes for Summer

For years I’ve been wanting a bike. Not a mountain bike. Not a road bike en route to conquering the Tour de France. But rather, an old school vintage style bike complete with a basket and maybe even some tassels for long leisurely rides. For the first time ever I live in a neighborhood that would make such a thing possible. A neighborhood boasting lots of streets lined with pretty houses and a hidden gem of a park tucked away on the hill overlooking downtown Syracuse. So naturally, I’ve got bike fever all over again. Fancy a pretty bike of your very own? Here are 8 of my current favorites. And, yes, most of them have baskets!
