Savannah could really use a city bike share! It’s flat, has heaps of students and visitors, and is just big enough to make it tedious getting to parts of town beyond the Historic District. First priority was renting a bike for my stay, and the guys at Sekka Bike couldn’t have been nicer.
Manifesting this scenario soon: LA, bike, daisies in the basket. The lovely Anita Ekberg, 1956.

From where I ride.
Every night, like a moth to a flame.
Every time we’re in Puerto Rico, we rent bikes from Tony at Rent the Bicycle. He’s the business. His bikes run well and each has its own cute bell. A bike into Old San Juan is essential: watch the sunset, eat some mofongo, drink Sangria.
In the words of Troy Dyer, “We’re called, Hey That’s My Bike.” Mangled bikes, Greenwich Village.
Oh bike on Second Ave, you’re, like, soooo on trend for fall. [air kiss]
Reunited with my Chicago ride AND IT FEELS SO GOOD!!!
Summer bike riding vibes.
Finally: my first long Brooklyn bike ride of the summer! I rode to Red Hook and hit my longtime favorite joint Hope & Anchor. I love their vibe, their grub and especially their Sailor Jerry bathroom collages – particularly significant because one of my favorite companies, Quaker City Mercantile, owns the rights to Sailor Jerry. QCM is one of the coolest companies in Philly (I’ve written about them here) and they’ve maintained the integrity of Sailor Jerry’s name while bringing more attention to his life and work as an artist. Holla.
Our bikes parked at the entrance of the marvelous Fort Castillo San Felipe del Morro. Old San Juan, Puerto Rico.
My most excellent sister riding up to Fort Castillo San Felipe del Morro. San Juan, Puerto Rico.
We rode along the northern coast for several miles and ended up in Old San Juan. The great lawn at Fort Castillo San Felipe del Morro was a sight to behold. It also made me want to fly a kite.
Travel essential: bike. I rent one no matter where I go. In Puerto Rico, I used Rent The Bicycle – inexpensive + great service. The owner Tony is a really cool guy + hooked us up with some Medellas (the local brew) post-ride. Plus, how cute is my bike bell??
If my vintage Raleigh ever rides again, it will be a miracle.
