Bicycle Week: Girls + Bikes + Penny Loafers

The title pretty much says it all: Two-wheeled, beweejuned eye candy. Bookmark this post, because these images also act as antidepressants. It’s impossible to feel sad while looking at a pretty girl with a smile on her face peddling a bicycle.

Or just standing anywhere near a bicycle:

Don’t ogle this one too much: She’s your little sister:

So’s this one:

But you can stare at this one all you want. And God created woman:

Here’s a contemporary cutie found through a random Google search. Married, unfortunately:

Vassar girls from our story by Rebecca C. Tuite (who’ll be contributing tomorrow’s bike post):

Why restrict ourselves to just penny loafers? From our previous post on the first co-eds at Princeton:

Saddle shoes at Vassar, 1936:

Do they still make bicycles built for two? I’d like to do the entire Tour de France with this one:

Here’s a bike built for two, as in pennies and saddles:

  1. Kudos, wonderful article.

  2. “Like” doesn’t even begin to describe it…

  3. Google: “Zooey Deschanel bike” No weejuns but gorgeous pics nonetheless.

  4. Where did you find the first picture of the legs and weejuns? I want to get a print of it framed for my study.

  5. That’s a LIFE image I believe, but I can’t remember the search terms. Try “girl” and “bicycle,” etc.

    Marvellous pictures, especially the first one –
    I am always wondering why so many men think that High Heels are sexy, I always prefered a wonderful bare woman’s foot in a Penny Loafer to all these nouveau riche High Heels…

  7. Sex sells, even in Tradsville. This post brought the biggest spike in traffic ever β€” much more than the WSJ story a few months ago. Also garnered the biggest amount of spam comments ever thanks to “girls” in the title.

  8. Babe with bike #5 is… is… zowie. That’s feminine beauty.

  9. Look at those ankles and knees — hubba hubba!

  10. Aww, thanks for posting me as your contemporary cutie!

    So many inspirational photos for me and my bike, Millicent! I wish everyone still looked like this why cycling.

    The word is pedalling, or pedaling if you absolutely insist. To peddle is to sell.
