When I first started snapping little bikes it was only of the stationary, riderless variety. This is not to say that there weren’t numerous occasions when I was tempted to chase after one zooming past me, (usually being ridden by a funky young woman in a skirt and boots sporting a lot of fringe and heavy framed glasses) to ask if I could photograph it. But it always seemed a bit stalkerish, especially since the blog was only a figment of my imagination.
But today, with the blog now a virtual reality, I threw caution to the wind. The minute I saw the flash of pink frame wheeling away from me I started trotting after it shouting ‘excuse me’ until the rider stopped – no shame me.
Thank you to this lovely repco rider for indulging me. I hope you eventually find the right sized white wall tires, and get the right sized thighs to turn those pedals. (They look good these bikes, but the secret is they are hard work).
