I moved to Madison, WI in the spring of 2007 and was thrilled to discover the bike paths and learn about local biking culture. I had bought a vintage Schwinn Breeze for $75 at a resale store. As it was the first bike I had owned since my bike was stolen as a kid some 9 years before, I couldn't wait to get riding. I knew nothing about bikes and made my decision to buy the Breeze on its glamor alone.
I am glad to have memorialized my trusty Schwinn in a video some friends and I made. Not only is it an ode to my Breeze and our discovery of Madison via the bike paths, but is also a parody of the hip-hop song "Ice Cream Paint Job" that glamorizes all things car. Upon seeing the video I thought, "I have to re-write this to be about bikes". So I did.
