Fall Bicycle Ride

It's not a lie, I love going on bicycle rides! A few years ago Scott and I went to through a huge bicycle phase and went on the hunt to find us the most perfect bikes. Since then we have both switched up our bikes of choice, but we still love going on long bike rides around Tempe Town Lake.

I'm currently riding a 1970'ish Schwinn Speedster, and Scott is riding a 1970'ish Huffy. Scott purchased my bike at a garage sale a few years ago and spruced it up for me. I purchased Scott's bike ride an antique store in a sale town in Colorado for a whole $7.50!

The morning we went on our ride it was absolutely beautiful! There was a chill in the air, and the sun was coming in and out behind the clouds! It was seriously the best! Before our ride we had a breakfast/coffee date, which made for an even more perfect morning.

It really had been too long since our last bike ride, but Scott and I vowed to make it apart of our weekly routine. Scott was so excited that he lifted his bike in joy!

Ok, maybe it didn't quite happen that way, but it sure was funny!

We are both loving being able to layer lately. Seriously, I was made to live in a climate that allows me to layer all of the time. I feel much more like myself when I'm able to do so.

I have a feeling that from now on the cold weather will mostly last around here. Thank goodness for no more 100 degree days! I'm seriously going to savor this amazing weather much as possible! Here's to cozy sweaters, warm drinks, and Blood Bank by Bon Iver.

Today is both Scott and I's Friday, so I'm thinking it would be fun to go out to a movie. We haven't been to one in SO long, which is SO unlike us! I kind of want to go see Martha Marcy May Marlene! Has anyone seen it yet?

  1. i need to squeeze in more bike rides before the weather takes a turn for the worse. i'd love to be a bike commuter.

  2. fall bike rides are so nice especially the layering part. circle scarfs are my favorite to wear because i don't have to worry about it falling off!

  3. Gah look at you cutie patooties! no but really, you both look adorable and both have adorable bikes! And I knew exactly where those pics were before even reading : ) Sounds like you both got awesome deals on those adorable bikes too! & yay for layering, I always get hints from you so keep it up girl. Happy weekend!

  4. i LOVE going for bike rides...and should be utilizing this spring-like weather we've been having in ontario to go for them but i haven't had a lot of time or when i do, it's raining, yuck!

    anyway, you both look great! i love layering too...mikey does as well, i definitely understand what you mean how it makes you feel more you. i'm not a big fan of dressing in the summer, i just don't ever really like my outfits. cold weather is for me!

  5. I love that scarf and I adore a striped top for bike ride. You are lovely.


  6. Your bikes are so cute! I would totally go on bike rides...if I knew how to ride one. Yes, I am the only adult that does not know how to ride a bike!

  7. Love my bike! You look gorgeous with your hair up!
