Tomorrow morning the plan is to wake up and go for breakfast somewhere in Boscombe maybe Bosconova or Urban reef and go shopping for a second hand bike for my flat mate. There is something about cycling that is so much fun! Maybe it's reliving that sense of freedom that you had when you were a child, or the ability to take in all those things you miss when you are driving. I'm not the type of cyclist that races around trying to beat their time. I cycle for the pure fun of it!
I am hoping this dry sunny weather stays around for a view days so that we can get on our bikes and go for a beach ride! Below are a few of my favourite bike accessories that I bought last year for my bike, who I have named Jean-Pierre Jeunet after my favourite french film director, as the second hand bike I bought was french I thought it should have a french name.
