Another new bike!

I'm buying another new bike, but this time it's not for me. It's a christmas present for my wife.
I've always loved the classic simplicity of the Pashley range and if there is any bike that would get my wife cycling to work this would be the one.
It's not the cheapest bike on the market at £450 but you pay for what you get.
One of the only suppliers in Northern Ireland is Quinns cycles in Kilkeel and as I was doing a juggling job there on Saturday I went in to pay a deposit. Luckily he keps them in stock so i'll be able to pick it up before Christmas.
I'm going to have to clear some space in the garage, I might even put some hooks up to cut down on scratches.

Bike Love

Now I love bikes but I wouldn't take it this far.
Scottish man Robert Stewart (age 51) was arrested by police for having sex with his bike!

Mr Stewart was caught in the act with his bicycle by cleaners in his bedroom at the Aberley House Hostel in Ayr.

Gail Davidson, prosecuting, told Ayr Sheriff Court: "They knocked on the door several times and there was no reply.

"They used a master key to unlock the door and they then observed the accused wearing only a white t-shirt, naked from the waist down.

"The accused was holding the bike and moving his hips back and forth as if to simulate sex."

I know its a bit strange, but was it really any one elses business if he was doing it in the privacy of his own room?
