Take for example this gorgeous, Schwinn Varsity, circa 1975. No spandex needed on this beauty. Notice the beautiful rake on the fork. That's comfort. Beautiful chrome fenders and what's that...a wicker basket!
To give you more details, the bicycle's name is Eleanor and wanting to go with the rider is Bunny. Unfortunately, Bunny is too big for the basket.
It doesn't have to be May 14 or Bike to Work Day. You too can bike (not cycle in Spandex) any day you wish.
Bunny still doesn't believe she can't fit in the basket.
