There is really very little I remember about bicycling as a child, and it's not because I had some terrible experience with a bike once upon a time and now my psyche is trying to repress any horrid memories. It is simply because I wasn't really a biker in my younger years. I was the child who was more inclined to baking cookies, picking flowers, reading books and basically doing anything that didn't require excessive amounts of physical activity. Come to think of it, I haven't really changed much since then. But one thing has changed.... I now want to ride a bike. I've had a bike sitting in my garage for many years with the hopes that I would one day get up the interest to take the thing around the block, but I will admit, I hate hills. They are too much work to conquer on a bike and what do you know my house sits atop a hill... so hence, no biking. But these images you will find below, make me want to rethink my aversion to such steep terrain in hopes of having an experience as glamorous as the one Erica from HonestlyWTF did with her new Papillionaire bicyclette. Who knows, maybe replacing my current bike with this beauty will make me an active individual after all...
