Time to get the bikes out

Summer (that's a joke) is almost here so it is time to get the bikes out again.

I am no cyclist either but I do enjoy a slow seaside ride. We have two bikes each, three Saracens all modded and this I had custom built for comfort

Good on ya, and no you don't have to be a cyclist (as in MAMIL) to enjoy a day out on the bike. You're just a guy on a bike, and that seat looks comfy

My bike has rusted handlebars and a surfboard rack, although the alloy frame and running gear are still good, no danger of theft. My old xx arabesque road bike though is just decoration .
