cruiser bike

On a recent trip to Louisiana, I had the chance to ride a good old, one-speed cruiser bike. It reminded me of the original bikes I owned back in Montana.

It was very comfortable and one speed was all I needed on the Tammany Trace Trail since it was so flat and well paved. It took me a while to get used to the good old back pedal brakes. A couple times, when I got to highway crossings, I tried to find hand-brakes only to realize they weren't there.

Since I spent two full days on the trail, I appreciated the wide seat and the high handlebars. It was a blast from my past and the real deal on two wheels.
