As part of an incredible wedding gift from my parents-in-law, the husband & I picked out brand new bicycles last month, both of which arrived this weekend—a road bike for the husband & a hybrid for me. My trusty red Schwinn was stolen last year, and I’ve been itching for new wheels ever since. Though I probably won’t look as elegant as Vertès’ Girl on a Bicycle, we’ll be hitting the lakefront bike trails this weekend, and perhaps head toward Milwaukee’s French festival, Bastille Days.
