Meet Lola

{A. and her bike Lola}

Meet my good friend A. and her new yellow Mixte named Lola. A and I met during our second year of grad school and quickly became close friends. We’ve trained for two marathons together and countless shorter races, we’ve spent hours discussing our respective dissertations and many more hours discussing life and family, and now it seems like we have one more thing in common: a love for vintage yellow mixtes. (Lola is a vintage Schwinn Le Tour).

A. just got her new bike and has started bike commuting to campus this Spring. There will be a first-hand account of that coming from her soon, but for now I just couldn’t help but share this gorgeous photo of her and Lola ready to head out.

For more yellow bike love, check out these beautiful images!

And have a wonderful weekend!

    How come all you US girls on bikes are so darned good looking, in comparison I’m afraid the bike comes a very poor second. Cheers.
