american beauties

On Sunday, I brought my accordion to the Hippie Hill in Golden Gate Park to practice. I figured the drum circle would drown out my chords and scales, so it was an ideal way to enjoy the spring sunshine and practice my new instrument.

Upon arriving, I immediately noticed this group of brightly colored vintage Schwinns, with a family of four playing frisbee nearby. When I asked the dad about his bicycles, he informed me that a friend of his restored them and he and his family enjoy riding them around. The man's personal clothing style was nothing for me to take note of (old tie-dye with rolled up jeans), but his bikes were impeccable. Reminded me of the yellow Schwinn with the banana seat I had as a kid!

A family that rides together stays together!
