Bike envy.

I have lots to share about my quick trip to Bordeaux this past weekend, but sadly, not enough time to write about it today. I know, I know – this busy life I lead! Reading and writing and drinking champagne and not really working can really jam up your daily schedule quicker than you think. It’s exhausting.

But while I have your attention (and potential death stares), I would like to take a second to talk about bikes. You may remember my very exciting purchase earlier this year. She’s a beaut, decked out with orange racing stripes and a basket:

There will always be a place in my heart for this first bike of mine, no matter how much the seat hurts my hoo-ha and the short handlebars put a crimp in my neck. She’s been good to me, and I cannot forget that.


Wouldn’t I look just so insanely awesome tooling my way through Paris on one of these babies:

Don’t ask me how I would carry that mo fo up and down my apartment stairs. Just imagine me cruising down the Champs-Elysées on it, but instead of a dog in the back I have Husband. Or a case of champagne. Or both!

Think of how many shopping bags I could fit in there. It would totally negate the need for the embarrassing orange granny cart! It’s so magnificent I can’t even stand it.

But how do I get my hands on one? Sadly, I’m finding it a bit difficult to budget for a bike that costs almost as much as our mortgage payment. But have no fear: You, my lovely (few) readers are going to help me WIN THIS MADSEN CYCLE.

All you gotta do is click on that link down there and nose around the Madsen website a bit. You can even get a chance to win one yourself by posting a link or banner on your own site. But if I find out that you won the bike I’ve been dreaming of instead of me, well, let’s just say you’ll owe me. Big. Like unlimited rides in the bucket big.
