Theresa Latten, organizer of Bars and Banana Seats is pictured with her bike, “Big Blue,” Friday in her Luverne backyard. The bike is a Huffy Beach Cruiser that she accessorized with a custom color wicker basket and a vintage pedal-powered teardrop headlamp from the 1980s. Latten is also a member of Bottoms Up Pink Ladies, and proceeds from the Aug. 8 ride will benefit the group, which supports people with cancer and their families.
