The beauty of the bike

I love the image of the traditional bike. It’s so simple and beautiful. It is the way a bike used to look and still can look without all the features and styling of specialist bikes. Now it’s probably known as a path bike and probably only has one or two gears for, pretty much riding on paths or mostly flat surfaces. Certainly no good for racing and no good for commuting either. If I lived near a beach and wanted to ride for a swim or a yoga class, this would be the bike to have. But for other means of getting around it just wouldn’t cut it. You’d never make a decent hill, keep up in traffic or ride very far. Still I love the image of this bike and what it says about simple getting from A to B by pedal power without worrying about traffic, conditions and terrain. The beauty of the bike.
