Three Things: Bicycle Edition

2012 March 12

Is spring here? Judging by the number of people out-of-doors this weekend, the answer appears to be a resounding yes. Time to pack away those winter coats, I guess, and pull out the trusty (and possibly rusty) bicycle. Or, at the very least, stretch out on that brown grass, pull out a pen, and write about a bicycle (f)or two.

Forgotten what they look like? Here, let me help you with that.
