This and That
You can get with this
or you can get with that
Sometimes I wear a helmet
sometimes I wear a hat
Sometimes I work from home
with my lovely assistants
Sometimes I go on rides
in the cold wearing mittens
Sometimes I ride with others
sometimes I ride alone
Taking wacky pictures
with my camera phone
meeting nice people
eating hot soup
climbing hills along the
Now let's all get cozy
with a warm cup of java
Or how about a crazy
Enjoy your weekend
and the beauty outside
No matter what you're into
it's time for a ride!
Bravo! (But thanks to you, that Black Sheep song is now running through my head.)ReplyDelete
We are lucky to have the December sunReplyDelete
as we near the winter soltice bike riding is fun.
Thanks to you Velouria for all you have written
for all of us who are bicycle smitten.
Thanks for making me smile :D HAve a great weekend!ReplyDelete
Ditto... gotta ride.ReplyDelete
Like it :>DReplyDelete
Ha, love this! Especially the lovely assistants and the balaclava. :)ReplyDelete
Nice -- I like the Dr. Seuss-like vibe. And this might be the very first time ever that "java" and "balaclava" were paired for a rhyme!ReplyDelete
So nice! This is why I ride! Thanks for getting my weekend of to a great start.The basket in the first pic is killer.ReplyDelete
oh wonderful. B and I kinda love that song. It's famous here as for showcasing choices to the children. "you can get with this- or you can get with that..." The kids find it a lot less funny....ReplyDelete
anyway- enjoy- have fun!
Thanks everyone : )ReplyDelete
The baskets in the first and last picture are from the House of Talents. I have them on loan for review.
Engine, engine number 9....damn it!ReplyDelete
Now I'm not only flashing back to high school, but to the bike I rode back then...Raleigh Technium 21-speed fall-apart - I mean mountain bike.
Thanks for a great post and for showing everyone your wicked rhyming skills!
Thank you for the nice set of pictures with captioning. May you have continued great riding and a joyous holiday period.ReplyDelete
Holiday cheers from Romania!
La multi ani!
Mmmm... hot soup.ReplyDelete
Handsome basket (the balaclava is nice too)ReplyDelete
I wish I could go ride, but I'm trapped in the kitchen cooking dinner for 26 tonight....riding to the store might be all I get to do..
Needed a smile today. Love it!ReplyDelete
Love that basket. The color scheme is so charming.ReplyDelete
Love your blog. Read it regularly. My opinions of your whole enterprise are 99.99% positive. Love your evolving perspectives. Appreciate your opinions. Dig your whole thing.ReplyDelete
BUT I just can't figure out your (apparently aesthetic) fascination with laying your bikes down on the ground! What's up with that? They look so orphaned, disrespected, injured, like BMXs tossed aside at the corner store, ready to be backed over by a delivery truck.
Stand 'em up. Lean 'em ready to ride. Buy a kickstand. ANYTHING!
Had to get that off my chest finally. Sorry.
Please take this in the friendliest way possible.
Love this post! Very cute. I love your assistants too :)ReplyDelete
Nice! You inspired me to go for a ride!ReplyDelete
Super-cute assistant cats!!ReplyDelete
Woah, that is a gorgeous basket in the first pic! Can't wait for the review. That would almost be worth the inevitable drag.ReplyDelete
Great rhymes and silliness. Just what the bike blogosphere needs, sometimes! Thanks V.
:D We have a couple of those assistants too, but the only thing they really assist with is occasionally warming your lap, otherwise they tend to be somewhat counter-productive :)ReplyDelete
Just rode across town in the cold winter sunshine to pick up our weekly milk delivery. Happy weekend!
This just in: lovely bicycle can rap!ReplyDelete
Very nice, Velouria. Thank you.ReplyDelete
A ride was doneReplyDelete
Eye contact made
Nothing the wife forbade
Cave Women, with flute and accordian in hand
Belied their name
With angelic strands
Across from a building in cinders
Started from elf-whittled tinder
No monoculture for me
Glad to have the variety
Ha! Love it! Your assistants look hard at work (or more accurately, hardly working.) Like the balaclava. Makes you look like a bike ninja. :)ReplyDelete
Love this cheery post -- totally made me smile!ReplyDelete
Thanks for a lovely post from lovely Velouria. I totally dig that basket from the first photo.ReplyDelete
A great set of photos from a visually rich blog. Gives us a literal window into winter biking in Boston at its best.ReplyDelete
Ha that was great wonderful pics with it to. Sure coulda used a big bowl of hot soup after this mornings ride sooooo cold but good coldReplyDelete
I like the sequence of assistants...mittens. It makes one think of the "kittens" in the photo, a visual rhyme. You make readers invariably think of a word you didn't write. Very nice, restrained, subtle.ReplyDelete
