Too cold to bike? Put a sweater on it.

I love my neighborhood. And since our stuff arrived the other day (including my bike), I’ve been riding around the small, tree lined streets. There are a lot of bikes around, locked to every pole structure, which makes it hard to find parking. Here’s a couple of bikes across the street from my apartment, they’re making bike babies…

Today, I was feeling tired and out of sorts, until I saw a knitted bike [correction: crocheted bike]. Right out there in real life! Nothing like unexpected whimsy to jolt me out of the land of nod. I’ve seen these on the internet around, hence, I’m showing you on the internet…just in case.

Then, after I was done marveling on how someone would have the patience to knit a bike cozy including the child seat… half way down the block was another one!

Happy Friday!

    This is AMAZING! I’ve never seen these before, but than again, I’m usually a zombie with my headphones on walking like a maniac through manhattan, so I probably wouldn’t notice..

    Sister wolf just put up a post about the artist olek who basically crocheted everything in his life, these bikes cozies look very similar to his work.

    I’m a knitter, and those would be crocheted bike cozies. Not be snotty or anything, just thought you’d like to know :)

    I saw a lamppost like this last summer in a nearby city, it really drew attention.. people were stopping at taking photos. Sure brightens up an otherwise dull, gray street :)

    OMG I just don’t even know what to say about a bike sweater! I love all of the colors, but how in the world do you get it on and off?!
