The initial idea was to look out for something cheap and cheerful. Nick got a bike for £50 from our next door neighbour and has been using it to get to work. I was hoping to greet something similar.. However, it looks like Nick got a bit of a mega-bargain. The nice man at the local bike shop had nothing in second hand that was suitable for me and then it happened. One of those almost heavenly moments. There at the back of the shop was my dream bike, the definite one for me, and I had to have it.
May I proudly present to you, the Duchess.
Took the camera with me last night and took some pics
The Padiham turnoff near the farm shop. Carried on a bit further though to get onto the Padiham greenway.
Just loving the cycling at the moment. Lots of interesting things to see, people to chat to and a different view of familar landscapes. It's great. I have a big smile on my face when I'm out and about.
Wisdom of the day. In the evenings, try not to cycle with your mouth open. You will end up eating a whole ecosystem if you do! This is the voice of recent experience!!!
