Open quote This season, bikes have shown up shown up in shoe stores, dress shops, in front of fancy hotels. And you can even buy a bike at CB2, the chic younger sibling of Crate and Barrel. There are two solid gray bikes with big yellow tires and bright red seats.

Open quoteThis season's hottest new boutique hotel in Montauk, NY, the historic, formerly fleepy fishing village and surfer hangout that has been attracting and increasingly young and hip crowd, is reaching out to cyclists.

The first thing guests notice when they pull up the driveway at Ruschmeyer's, situated on three woodsy acres overlooking Fort Pond, is the bike rack with a custom fleet of unisex Dutch-style bicycles.

In tune with the hotel's laid-back retro vibe, Ruschmeyer's designer worked with Republic Bike to customize their Plato Dutch Step-thru bikes with cream frames and green tires. The Ruschmeyer's name appears on the caincases, and the hotel's anchor logo is stamped into the jumbo red bells.

Guests at the hotel, which opened amidst plenty of buzz over Memorial Day weekend, have been using the bikes to travel the half-mile ride to Montauk's pristine Atlantic Ocean beaches.Close quote

QuoteThe Mark, a youthfully luxurious hotel on the Upper East Side, has commissioned Republic Bikes to fashion them a fleet of suitably fabulous steeds. The bikes incorporate elements of the 1920s hotel's lavish interior - overhauled three years ago by Jacques Grange, whose designs grace the interiors of some of the most fabulous hotels in the world - such as monochrome stripes on the chaincase, MARK1 licence plates and a monogrammed bell.Quote - Conde Nast Traveler, May 2012
