There’s really no purchase that fills me with such joy and excitement and even pride as a bicycle. They’re all beautiful in their own ways, even the sad, rusty, non-functioning ones destined for the junkyard. They all have stories; not all of them are of idyll or romance or carefree days, but they all have stories. Because a cyclist can be a lot of things, but never bored – while cycling, anyway!
This is the fifth bike I’ve purchased in three and a half years. I feel like I have a new pet, and that we’re going to be friends and have adventures together. I can’t wait :) This is part of my apple tree!
