Shopping and Brunch by Bike.

This picture is over a week old but better late than never. Hopped on the bike to head over to Abbot Kinney Blvd. to hit up the great boutique Kolu and brunch at Primitivo Wine Bistro. It was a chilly day and I wasn't feeling very "cycle chic" but I was warm and comfy - which is how I like to be on a Sunday morning.

Me? A Winner?!

I can't believe it! I actually won something! It's been a running joke between me and boyfriend that neither of us ever win anything. And then yesterday it all changed! I won a pair of Chrome knickers from one of my favorite blogs - Lovely Bicycle!

This is the post that announced my win. And this is the original post about the knickers that were up for grabs.

Unfortunately for Velouria, the pants didn't fit her. Her loss is my gain! As soon as I receive the pants, I'll give them a try and write a review. Look for it here and also over on Lovely Bicycle.

Thank you, Velouria, for finally making me a winner!!!

Rivendell Sighting.

Last week when I was out at breakfast I spotted a Rivendell Atlantis!

Hi I'm Pretty.

My jealous Bianchi in the background.

Even though Rivendell bikes come from California, I don't see them in the wild all that often. This one was parked outside my favorite breakfast spot (Nichols in Marina Del Rey). When I went inside I secretly checked out the clientele to see if I could figure out who was the Atlantis owner. :) Though the Atlantis would not be my Rivendell of choice (I'd probably go for the Betty Foy or the Quickbeam) it was still fun to see such a beauty up close and personal.
