Rainy days are better together

Schwinn tandem bike bicycleDon't you just love this blue Schwinn tandem? Spotted in East Cambridge, I was delighted on a rainy day to discover they'd decorated the bike with blue and pink butterflies.

I've amused myself on my commutes since, trying to work out who might own a bike like this. It's just too darling!

Oh, I've been coveting a vintage tandem since seeing one at Metonomy cycles. They're reasonably priced, but where to put it!
