Could definitely be the job for me?!!
However, I’m not sure about what they’re wearing though🙄
Everywhere you look, bikes are on the up.
Even the government is blowing the cycling trumpet as UK bike exports keep rising, now contributing £173.2 million to year end March 2020, representing a rise of 15%.
This is all good news for cycling and the cycling community.
It has been approved for councils to issue fines for drivers who park in cycle lanes. It’s a job to argue that this isn’t a good thing is it not? – no question.
It is very annoying and inconsiderate but it can also be dangerous. You never know, it may even be a thing of the past – if we’re lucky…
Uber is crushing and throwing away their older Jump bikes in the USA, just because it’s “too difficult” to recycle them. Just the waste. Horrendous. They are crushing them, yes, crushing bikes. Perfectly good bikes.
They may look a bit strange but there’s nothing wrong with them and they’re usable.
Who makes these decisions?
Why not have some fun and decide which is your favourite?
The Colnago has that classic look and makes you want to swoon, and the Holdsworth frame is nice but now you know it’s owned by Planet X it doesn’t quite fee the same. The Shand Cycles Stoater for me looks stylish and is practical for everyday riding and off-roading. It’s the one that I’d be saving my pennies for if I had any! Dream on… 😥
As well as buying them, people have been getting them out the shed and finding them seized up and not working well.
If you’ve got some skills and knowledge, get yourself out there fixing bikes!
There’s definitely something strange going on out there in the Bike World. You only have to look outside your window and there are more people riding bicycles than ever – all sorts of bikes ridden by all sorts of people, everywhere.
Not just that, but there are people in power saying things about transport policy that they don’t normally say. They are giving away vouchers to get your bike fixed and it seems that bike shops just can’t cope with it all – especially with all the additional restrictions and difficulties in place around Covid-19.
So strange as it may seem, let’s all look forward to a Brave New Bike World. Pinch yourself. Is it really real?
