Having enjoyed a fantastic day out at the recent L’Eroica Britannia Bike Festival in Bakewell spurred me on to put in more miles on the bike. Passing the Tinytwin stand I thought although a great idea, I didn’t fancy a ‘mini me’ on the mantelpiece complete with beer belly! This still didn’t deter me from enjoying a Bakewell pudding and a glasses of Pimms (on tap – now that’s genius). Whilst watching the ‘best in show’ I had serious bike envy, not helped by the lovely frames on sale around the show.
So until next year when I intend to use my 35 year old Raleigh Competition and of course purchase an appropriate outfit to match, it’s time to get fit – you never know I might be deemed the most handsome biker in the show.
