Orientation Smoothie Shake, Bikes!

**Update** Jared has informed me he put his break back on his bike.

I am not one to eat breakfast when I wake up but I have my orientation this morning at the college and know I'll need something in my belly to help me pay attention. I made a very filling smoothie shake out of vanilla soymilk, a frozen banana and a handful of frozen strawberries. I seriously doubt the campus will have any thing to munch on today and the orientation lasts about 4 hours, so I may have to pack a snack.

Oh, and I also wanted to show off our bikes. We went biking in downtown Decatur on the Trail this past weekend and had a lot of fun. It's starting to get hot though!
My bike is the pink Schwinn cruiser bike and Jared's is the orange IRO fixed gear/no break. I'm thinking about selling my cruiser bike and getting a fixed gear myself, although I personally would like to have a break on mine. Jared is super into bikes, so it would be a nice hobby for us to share together. You can check out Jared's blog here.

Oh MAN!! My daughter has wanted nothing more than a pink Cruiser bike for the last three years since first seeing one. She is OBSESSED! (Cheaper than a car but still not in my price range!)So cool that you have one!

Ryan just bought a fixed gear & I think he went with an IRO as well. He ended up getting a brake, this is hilly San Francisco after all!

Your bike is so cute! I have been waiting for more consistent weather to break mine out, but this post makes me want to go biking now!

Hey, congrats on getting into school (offically).
I looked up fixed-gear bikes since I'm not familiar with them and I found this, which I thought you might be interested in since you live in GA: "Laws in most states where fixed-gear riding is popular, including New York, California, Maryland, Oregon and Georgia, require that bicycles be equipped with a brake that enables the operator to make the braked wheels skid on clean, dry pavement."
Your cruiser is so fun :)
