I love everything about this picture (found on 100 Layer Cake)- especially the fact that the bike looks just like McKenzie’s new Trek! She took it for a spin yesterday for the first time, and now I’m totally jealous and feel like I need one too! Cycling around Houston has not been the safest thing historically, but it’s becoming more and more popular. McKenzie told me about “Shrink Houston,” which is the brainchild of Bobby Heugel (of Anvil and Hay Merchant). The organization for which he is a co-founder, OKRA, will donate bike racks to restaurants and bars, to encourage a more active mode of transport and hopefully reduce the amount of road traffic in Montrose (only the coolest part of Houston, obviously).

  1. I think you’d love having a bike, especially if you carried fresh flowers in your basket ๐Ÿ™‚
