This classic bike is in my basement.  Unfortunately, it was crippled after an incident.  It was perched on top of my roof rack.  Driving and turning a corner, the sheer heavy weight and centrifugal force made the bike bend at the fork and sideways.  The bike, after all, is a tank, due to its iron-like build.  Although damaged, it will return after some fixing.  I wanted to honor the Schwinn by drawing it in all of its glory.

Talking about biking, if you’re in New York City, take advantage of Summer Streets.  On three consecutive Saturdays (August 8, 15 and 22), Park Avenue and Lafayette Street is car-free traffic for cyclists and pedestrians.  The time block is 7am to 1pm.  The route is between 72nd to City Hall.  For more information, check out nyc.gov.
