The search for the "beautiful bicycle"

I’ve worn out my old bike and it’s time for a new one, but what to buy?

In May in Paris I bought a department store bike for €139 to get around (basket, rack and dynamo front light included!). I sold it for £50 three weeks later, so it was cheaper than a rental, and I didn’t stand out as a tourist. What a wonderful experience to ride a Euro bike – so comfortable and easy.

Parliament: cycling question from Fred Nile

Thanks to Sam and others who wrote letters to the Minister for Roads. It seems Roozendaal has finally learned his lines properly this time , after his foolish comment in the media last Friday that groups of cyclists shouldn't be on the road in peak hour. This is from Hansard on 13 May, during questions without notice.
