White – White salt, white wandering cloud, white flaky fish.
Blue – Sheer celestial blue, all embracing sea.

About the bikes: It’s called “electric-assist” because that’s what it is; a boost when you need it, and a bike when you don’t. This isn’t a moped, and there’s no reason to feel guilty. It’s just another way to ride on your terms.
