I scratched the top tube of my bike with my shoe when climbing off. My wife suggested that I try dismounting off the back of the saddle rather than my ungainly forwards manoeuvre followed by a huge back-step. She’s probably right. This weekend I was blowing the dust off a few old boxes as I try to reduce my junk-hoarding and I came across a photo that probably explains the roots of my awkward habit.
I’m not sure a foam top-tube protector would look too hot on my current bike, but I’d love to get my hands on a packet of those multicoloured spokey-dokeys.
There was also this cracking snap of us holidaying in our family motor.
It’s too tough to declare a winner between these bikes and the car. But they certainly made me laugh and distracted me from the task in hand …
