Jamie, W Adams St & S Wells St, Chicago, IL

Jamie rides a purple vintage Schwinn step-through that is currently for sale. 

Make/model color of your bike, and where you got it? It's an amazing vintage Schwinn. I bought it in Minneapolis right before I moved to Chicago. It's for sale!
Where are you going? Heading home from work.
What are you wearing? Pants from White House/Black Market, shirt from Express, and the yellow bag is from Zia in Little Italy.
Why ride? It's 10x faster than walking!
Favorite ride? Anything in the early morning.
While riding you …? I'm still learning my way around Chicago, so usually I stay pretty focused on making it to my destination without getting run over and avoiding biking onto the freeway.
How can Chicago improve bike infrastructure or make Chicago more bike friendly?  The atmosphere for biking is pretty good here compared to places that I've lived before. I've never been able to bike this much and in such good company.


  1. Omg! Jamie & Martha! I love this bike. How can I find out the price & size? Such a purty cruiser.
