Having a bike in Chicago is like having a key to the city. It opens it up in ways that traveling in a car can’t. With traffic being awful here, especially on the weekends, jumping on a bike allows you to get from Wicker Park to the lake faster than any other way.
So when the weather gets nice, I live for biking around Chicago. It’s how I run my errands and get from place to place. The only downfall is that I was cruising around on a bike I got for my 10th birthday that hardly “cruised” anymore, if you catch my drift.
That is until one day last week when the heavens opened up and I finally got a new bike. It’s not just any bike, it is the Columbia 700 C Westfield City Bike. And it is most definitely the coolest bike I have ever owned.
Some refer to it as “the cool hipster rider.” Well that is just totally me. Obviously.
It’s also way cooler than Chris’s bike which I happen to love. He used to always make fun of me for having the “junker bike,” but not anymore. Now when we jump on our bikes to head to lunch I’ve got the showstopper. Yes, I just referred to my bike as a showstopper.
If you can’t tell, I am a little obsessed. It is by far the coolest thing I have ever received. It doesn’t just look pretty, but it also rides like a dream. Columbia was the first company to make bikes in the USA and there’s a reason they’ve been around forever. They make beautiful, long lasting bikes. Fun fact: Columbia invented the tandem bike!
I’m about to nerd out on you and tell you every feature the Westfield City Bike has to offer because I’m like a proud new mom and want everyone to know.
