After years of riding Racing bikes, Town bikes and Mountain bikes
(depending on the type of terrain...)
I bought a "granny bike" (daughter's term..!) last Summer for only a
handful of euros at one of our local Brocantes
and I'm just so pleased with it..!
I'd had my eye on a Pashley bike for a while,
however, common sense told me,
I'd be just as happy with my cheap Brocante find...
my photo of my bike, Saturday in the garden...
The ‘sit up and beg’ style handlebars make me feel far more graceful
and ladylike (not to mention comfortable) on my bike
than I ever did on more regular hybrid bikes I've had...
Saturday here in the Alps was Spring-like, and out came the bike, for a trip
to the Farmers' market followed by a gentle ride along the lakeside
for coffee Chez Carine and then home for a Barbecue lunch
in the garden...
Sadly, weatherwise, Sunday was a different story altogether, and
my beloved bike is now back in the garage where it's been
gathering cobwebs all winter..!
Can't wait to bring it out again;
let's hope Spring is just around the corner...
