Dutch Bicycle Craze

When my 3rd comes to pick me up from work, my colleagues already know what's about to go down... We'll be hopping onto the bike together! It's not a tandem no, it's just a regular English Pendleton Somerby. Nothing special about it, just two Dutchies who will be riding it home. I've noticed that we're …

Rachel and me…

I just watched 'The Rachel Divide' on Netflix and I was shook. Simply because I understand.
