I got a new bike!
Roughly 5 years ago Andrew bought me a bike for my birthday. It was the first bike I’d had since I was about 10. It wasn’t a new bike, it looked like it had been well loved before being donated to a bike recycling organization in Newcastle. It did me very well, getting me around for years. Sadly having an old bike had it’s troubles, the parts aren’t around anymore so if it breaks that could be it. Even just a flat tire was a big deal, one that recently nearly cost Andrew his hearing!
Today I said goodbye to my lovely old Raleigh and started a new journey with my brand new Claud Butler. I’m calling her Daisy and she’s wonderful to ride.
Soon I’ll be adding a basket so she can help me with the shopping!
