It’s so easy to love a bike so beautiful. Delightful, charming, handsome the three wins that steal any heart….even for those at the Firenze Bicycle Film Festival where it was just featured last week.  So, go ahead and stare: UCY bicycles are used to it. This amazing model is the 11F1 Porteur Duomatic. Proud to mention it’s wicked fast sporting an F1 track steel frame, columbus cromor, fillet brazed with soldering and stainless steel details, finished in an acid treatment then coated twice with clear polish. A convenient, well-sized carrier secured to the front also hosts a spiffy stainless steel thermos attached by fine leather straps. Fancy the unique mustache handlebar shape finished in leather ends, which perfectly compliment the similarly colored saddle and wheels.

I find a way to fearlessly provoke your senses and take you by the heart to whatever it is I’m writing about. My sweet spot is creative writing, but for the last 20 years I have been providing freelance content for publications on sustainability and green practices, design, architecture, fashion, and non-profit charity. Recently all wrapped up in producing my first book. I have bounced from NYC to Indianapolis, but my true home is a lovely small town in Central Pennsylvania where there’s a legit drive-your-tractor-to-school-day.
