My bicycle

I am very excited to be getting a new bicycle – albeit one that is about 60 years old. She is simply beautiful; a Rudge Ladies Roadster.

She is now being stripped, sorted, retyred, basketted and relit at the wonderful Common Wheel, which I’ve written about years ago here. Buying a bike in such a place is  life-affirming pleasure.

Here she is. I will post a new picture when she’s ready.

    A thing of beauty is a joy forever. Why, that bike is almost as old as I am — and it looks a heckuva lot better than I do even before its restoration. I’m jealous.

    Watch this film …!/OneDayMovie

    … and your pleasure in biking may take a dive. Good movie though.

    PS. Anne Hathaway is thing of beauty. Rafe Spall is less so … but nevertheless a joy.
