feel good . do good . look good --- cycling
I think all the Dunkin' Donuts in this part of the country have gone out of business, but I agree, it would be funny to see bikes outside them. Kind of like going to IKEA or Walmart or something here, which are way outside of the main part of the city, and don't usually attract the stereotypical bikey crowd :)
We still have one here about a mile away from home.That is a beautiful blue!!!:) Laura
Ok...it doesn't have the same panache as a cappuchino and croissant at the local cafe but perhaps spinning a few miles is a pretty good excuse for an indulgence anyway!
Also....Charlotte, you have a fine photographic eye but that top photo of the old Dutch just totally blows me away!!
portlandize- Dunks are the northeasts Starbucks ( before starbucks took over the nation. They are all over in boston. We ( mostly) love our dunks.I hope to be biking the box bike to pick up one of those Box O Joe's for a PTO luncheon next week ;-). Shall I take a pic for you?
Dennis - thank you!MamaVee - would you please? I'd be so amused! :)Dunkin' Donuts was a bad word when I lived in Boulder, CO but now it's such a part of the fabric of my Boston life. We had to visit the DD we saw in Lima, Peru just to say we did.
no offense to the DD lovers, but i've never understood the popularity of DD. they've spread like wildfire and i just don't get it.anyway, yeah, the bike against the DD backdrop is a strange juxtaposition.
somervillan - my appreciation stems from my understanding of the Bostonian psyche - it's like loving the Sox for 80 losing years, or embracing the ridiculously long winters, allowing MassHoles to drive, or the consistently bad (but always in the same way) coffee at Dunkin Donuts... It's part of the urban, gritty, stoic character of this city. Let other parts of the country have their trendy coffee - Massachusetts wants none of that. I do find that it's jus de chausettes or, as Ani diFranco sang "the coffee is just water dressed in brown" but the experience? That's 100% Boston.
4 DD on the Northeastern campus. I'm a tea drinker. Don't give me the overpriced "gourmet" stuff at the Good Pain, (and don't even get me started on the junk that passes for tea at Starbucks); DD's is actually better quality tea! (And this, from a guy who goes through a quarter-kilo of good single-estate assam every month!)Fantastic shots of a lovely blue bike!
Cool, that bike is a Gazelle customised by Jolly Bike. I so wish they were still in business.
that bike is awesomeeeeeee
That's a hilarious picture. Cycling does work up a donut appetite :)
