1. Its the color of sunshine
    Fucking duh 🌞
  2. Its distinctive
    Generally easy to find on large racks
  3. It matches the yellow flowers i buy sometimes from treasure island
    And then carry under my arm while im biking like im in a motherfucking rom com off to surprise my emotionally unavailable architect boyfriend
  4. Because its distinctive, i can weave narratives in my head of people noticing "yellow bike girl"
    Especially the secret service guy who is posted outside obama's house on 51st, past whom i bike almost on a daily basis
  5. It's the color of goddamn bumblebees
    The gentle giants of the insect world
  6. Because red and blue bikes are much more common, i often get the chance to lock my bike between one red and one blue to complete a primary colors triad
