Women's Cruiser Bikes

Updated on November 13, 2012

Go Vintage with a Classic Cruiser Bicycle for Ladies!

Modern bicycles are not nearly as much fun as the classic, vintage cruising bikes of days gone by. Perhaps it is because so many people use their bikes for hardcore exercise, for daily commuting, and otherwise place much more demand on their bikes than they used to. In days past people used to cruise leisurely along on big bikes with big banana seats and U-shaped handlebars that were easy to use and not so stressful on your back. In my opinion they were MUCH easier to ride too!

In my early 30s I decided I wanted to start riding a bike again but the modern women's bikes were not at all what I wanted. I kept imaging the lemon yellow bicycle I had as a child with a banana seat and huge handlebars with a basket attached. I LOVED that bike and I wanted something similar to ride on my local trails and park bicycle paths. Lucky for me cruising is coming back.. or at least the cruiser look is! The following are some beautiful women's bikes with a classic, vintage, beach cruiser look.

      Oh yes, I'm ready for a cruiser. Love these retro bikes. Should have had one when I lived on Padre Island. Not exactly the right bike for where I live in the mountains. Shoot! Oh well, a girl can dream. :-)
