Bicycle Week: Take a Ride with Take Ivy

As I suggested in the rececent olive post, now that we’ve all drunk in the big picture, the atmosphere, of “Take Ivy,” I think the reason to return to it will be in order to look specifically at certain things like shoes, haircuts, trousers, and, in this case, bicycles.

The three “Take Ivy” authors felt bicycles were an intrinsic part of the students’ lives and devoted a page to text about them. As for the photos, bikes appear in over a dozen of them:

  1. I love that old dark green and white bicycle. My grandparents had two, a male and female model, hanging in their garage for years. I wish I knew what happened to them, I would dig slipping on the weejuns and chinos and just tool around.

  2. I think it’s interesting how short these bikes are. In most of the pictures, their knees are near, if not above, the handlebars. It’s been awhile since I’ve ridden anything but a modern mountain bike, so I don’t know if this is just the style of the bike. Is this how yours rides? Or are they just riding the bikes they had when they were kids? It looks uncomfortable to me.
