Meet Ike

This is my bike, and yes I named him Ike (not very originial is it?) I purchased him at the Orange County Swap Meet for $30 dollars. He is a lovely sea foam green color, has a white basket, and makes troubling creeking noises approximately every 1.3 tire rotations. I went to Laguna Beach a few weeks back, where my bike has been chained to a wall for the last 8 months. Luckily, it was still there, a bit dusty, and a bit rusted... but I managed to smash open the lock, and bring him back to Provo!

I couldn't be more thrilled to have a bicycle again. I love riding my bike around town, exploring, people watching, and filling my basket with all sorts of silly things I find along the way. This week I plan to do some good, quality riding. I just hope Ike doesn't fall apart.

Mckay is great.  He plays around with me on all my frivolous photo taking adventures.
