I glance across my kitchen and see my beautiful, shiny new Velorbis Bicycle, (she will be referred to as Dorris from now on!) my wonderful christmas present that is yet to be ridden!
You see, since Dorris arrived, our wonderful British weather has kept me from test driving her, but today, there are no excuses. The snow has gone, the rain has abated and even the wind has calmed. There is no one in the house and as it is sunday, the streets are almost empty. It is therefore time for me to pluck up my almighty courage and take her for ride.
I haven’t got round to ordering myself a helmet yet so, the pavements it is!
Now Dorris isn’t a small bike, so it took me a few minutes to turn her round and get her outside. I take my place on the saddle, position the pedals and off I go…
…I am off, a bit wobbly to begin with, but to be fair, it’s been a while! Then I am flying! This is fab! My beautiful dutch shopper bike, is everything I hoped she would be. Now all that’s left to do, is to buy a cool retro helmet! X
