I thought I would give the panniers a test drive today so I went to town on my hippy bike. The yellow flowers on the panniers match those on the front mudguard, and I put some blue and gold stripes round the bars with tape. Don't she look purdy. I have colour coordinated myself to match, ha ha.
I had only been pedalling for ten minutes when I felt the need for a widdle. I'd forgotten how uncomfortable saddles can be on a skinny bum, wish I had a bit more padding.
When I arrived at the Arts Centre I fastened it to the railing with my pink cycle locks, right outside the entrance where the lady on reception could watch it for me. There is a new exhibition on which I wanted to see.
Our Netto in town has been turned into an Asda store so I went along to see if they had any bargains. Alas not, in fact I thought the prices were higher than Tesco. It might be worth a look in from time to time for the odd special offer, but I wont be making it my main shopping store.
I took the scenic route back along country lanes, it was quite pleasant in the sunshine. But my goodness my poor bottom is not used to this pummelling, and I didn't even go off road. I think I might need to stick a bit of padding down my pants, a babies nappy perhaps ;O)
For a change....
