Breezy Summer Style and an Elegant Black Bike

Following this evenings June Tweed ride planning meeting, Habitat for Humanity Flagstaff Chair Deb, an unidentified banjo player, and I stood outside The Green Room in complete agreement that Flagstaff had turned suddenly hot. The National Weather Service in Bellemont reported highs in the upper 80's on Sunday but Deb and the Banjo man swore the temperatures hit 97.

Our lovely Green Room bartender Brittany couldn't care less about the heat since she knows how to dress for the weather (and as my friend Marc would say, I hope sister is wearing sunscreen). Shoulderless striped sweater. Just below the waist cotton knee length A-line skirt (really the perfect length). Woven leather flip-flops. Very very breezy, feminine summer look. Of course, the flouncy wide brim hat and over-sized shades are a must during the summer in Flagstaff. Brittany likes to wear skirts and is very proud that she scored Specialized Globe step-through at Absolute Bikes. I think this might be a left-over from the 2008 models. The Globe step-through is virtually the same bike as the previously named Expedition that I often ride but the shiny black finish truly emphasizes the bikes elegant lines. The Globe is a great bike and a comfortable ride at a fantastic price (under $400). Although the newest Globe models come fully equipped for commuter biking, Brittany could easily upgrade her Globe with a Basil basket, fenders, a chainguard, a two pronged kickstand and a rear bike rack and be riding a perfect combination of style and utility. Oops, caught myself living vicariously!

Perfect summery look for biking!

Beautiful. I'm just not a fan of hybrid bikes. I test-drove a few, thinking they'd be the thing for me, and I don't like how they handle. Hope Brittany loves hers, though!
