“My boyfriend found this bike for me. It had been thrown away and he found it and gave it to me for my birthday. It was really lucky. And I really like the colour. I’ve had it for about a year now, or something. Good boyfriend. I had another bike but it was crappy and old and the tires were always flat. But I am very happy now.”
Photographer’s notes: Another one of the local cyclists I keep meaning to stop and pester. This time it was her new messenger bag. Stunner.
I am two metres tall and ride as low as I can, but you simply cannot hide that kind of size. But this rider… She sits low on the bike and then uses the drops – and she is barely as high as my crossbar.
