Britain’s Most Famous Touring Bike Is Back!

It’s difficult to explain how nice it is riding a bike after not having done so for a month. My short journey from AW Cycles in Caversham to the centre of Reading was brief but unimaginably pleasurable. Apart from the new tyres, cables & brake pads, nothing needed changing which is remarkable bearing in mind that this is a bicycle that has just travelled 5,700km across Europe. I was delighted to pay only ยฃ127 to have my friend Reggie back in full working order. For those of you who still commute by car, that’s about two tanks if petrol no? I don’t say this very often but I’m already looking forward to travelling to work on Monday morning…
P.S. Something is missing. Can you see what it is?

    • Correct! One of them was broken (although not sure when / how it happened) so although not unusable I asked them not to put them back on. I only use the rear ones when commuting and even then only on a Monday morning and Friday afternoon…

What do you think?
