While we love seeing men and women pull out all the stops for extravagant proposals, we admit: there's something about simple, sneaky ways of popping the question that never fails to leave us in awe. Imgur user ladwholived went for a sweet yet clever approach when asking for his boyfriend's hand in marriage, by popping the question with a ring that holds a powerful meaning. No, this was not your usual glitzy diamond decor, but instead, a gold engraved bike bell.
See, this guy and his longtime partner have done what most couples only get to put on their bucket lists: travel all of North America and explore its glory by bicycle. While the two were enjoying a ride in their new city, this guy gave a shiny gold bell a "ring" and popped the question. The gold piece was etched with the touching words "ride with me forever." This proposal is proof you don't need extravagant bling to sweep your partner off their feet. Read along to see more of the heartwarming moment.
