The sun may be shining at last in Melbourne, but spare a thought for our far, far northern cycling cousins who are coming into snow season. My friend took this picture in Helskini for me a while back…

Ever the little bike sleuth he wondered if he’d spotted a prize for me…

…good things come to those who wait…

Okay, I admit it (only because the forensic bike nerds will have already twigged) this is not the same bike. And my friend did not stand in the street all day waiting for the snow to melt, which would’ve been a good story (never let truth get in the way of a good story I say, blast those bike nerds and their eagle eyes!) The real truth is he found this little dear outside a laundromat in Helsinki, and he has it on good authority from the proprietor of said washing establishment that  the rider is an architect, possibly famous, though he may have made that bit up… my friend, not the laundrette guy… I think. I’m confused now. Anyway,  my first international bike. Hoorah!
