Cycling - it's the future

Iv'e been doing up my bike.

My bike is an interesting bike. The frame is a Raleigh 'Bomber' [haha], with surf style [almost like a scrambler motor bike] wide bars and Muddy Fox wheels and tyres. Shimano bog standard 12 gears, crap brakes. It is all chrome. Everywhere. When I bought it 12 years ago for £75, someone offered me £150 in the street for it. Perhaps I should have sold it, as it's now worth nish, but it was the beginning of the chrome bike fashion, so I keep it for sentimental reasons. And who knows, I may even start cycling regularly now that Tubes don't look so inviting.

Since the Tube bombings, the sales of cycles in London have gone through the roof.
