I haven't been off a bike since a purple 26 inch girls bike finally arrived on my 11th birthday, (in the decade when purple was as popular as orange and lime green). These days I mostly commute on a slightly long-in-the-tooth Shogun hybrid, nothing flash but looks cute with the the straight head- stem I put on a few years ago, making it a more upright ride and giving it a smart profile.

Other times, when there isn't far to go, I get about on a gorgeous 1970s emerald green Gitane folding bike. It's a bit of a struggle getting it up a hill, but otherwise it rides like a Sunday afternoon stroll in the sun.
What is the best thing about riding?
Everything except head winds. Oh and the fear of the car door.
A few words about yourself. (This bit is entirely optional!)
After I got my Gitane I started noticing other retro folding bikes, or cute little bikes that look like you could fold up them if you tried hard enough, all over my patch - Fitzroy. So I started snapping them on my phone. Eventually I had to do something with all the shots, so I started blogging them.

When I see a little retro bike, I photograph it and leave a calling card inviting people to visit the blog and tell me about their bike. And sometimes they do and that's the best bit. Love to share the little bike love.
