I was thrilled to learn that one of my very favorite bicycle bloggers, Velouria of Lovely Bicycle, is the new owner of a gorgeous, vintage Mercier mixte.
Careful readers may recall that my first vintage bike acquisition was this very same brand and style of bike and it occupies a place of great honor in my fleet. Here's my Mercier, Blaise:
To be joined in this by someone whose taste in bicycles I admire so greatly is a genuinely happy experience!
It will be fun to see what Velouria does with her mixte. I hope to glean lots of good ideas from her on outfitting and accessorizing it beautifully.
Congratulations, Velouria and happy riding! Here's hoping we get these two lovely bicycles on the same coast one day and go for a ride...
