My Dream Bicycle Holiday Wishlist

I was treated to some great service at the hospital last night (not baby, just me related) I had something gross taken care of and alas I am off a bike for about two weeks. So in the mean time I am going to fantasize up my perfect blue sky budget holiday wishlist.


Bike: 

I am mainly lusting after the Yuba Boda Boda at the moment. I love the midtail length and in my dream life the upgrade to the e-assist would be excellent for the hills around our home. I think the colors are very sharp in crisp white and apple green too. The basic bike is $999 which is a fantastic price point, I think adding a double kickstand for kid safety, the peapod seat and the bread basket make it an adorable addition to my wishlist. (PS I have never actually ridden this bike so this is purely superficial reasoning)

Trailer:

I prefer box bikes and kid seats, but with number two on the way a trailer would be a great way to pull a carseat on a bike. After some searching and discussing with other bike mamas, I think the Wicycle has won my heart. Priced between $299- $599 there are a lot of options for families. I really love how tall they are for visibility reasons and of course longevity.

Bags:

I am going to admit the last thing I really need is more bicycle bags but what the hell! I love the styles from PoCampo. The connect system makes it so a bag can connect to a stroller, to a bicycle etc. I love things that have life after babies too.

And shout out to a Philadelphia local company, Fabric Horse, they have some cute bags for the ladies and gents.

Books:

These might likely wind up under the tree for me as books are pretty affordable! But on my list this year are two bike titles: Bike Tribes: A Field Guide to North American Cyclists and Bicycle Diaries

So what is on your holiday list this year? & of course Merry Everything!!
