Bobbin Bicycles on Wednesday. I had to replace the bell I got a couple months ago for my Trek bike. Nothing wrong with it, but it was a little fiddly to use and I prefer a ‘ping’ sound. This bell is a tiny globe of baroque flowers. Love it. I was so pleased with my bell that I forgot to get the name of the maker. Next time I am in Bobbin I will ask.
It has been raining and wet most of this week and the one dry day we had I was on the Trek cycling in the West End and Angel. I have not used the Brompton all week. But I saw man riding a pink Brompton along Charing Cross Road and two very speedy Bromptons, one red and the other green weaving in and out of traffic in Piccadilly. Whenever I see other Bromptons I miss mine.
The sun has returned this morning but I have to wait for an engineer because I have no hot water. But after it is fixed I am jumping on the bike and back to a hot bath. Bliss.
