Super shiny new bicycle for daveb

Posted by daveb on November 21st, 2007

daveb’s shiny new bike!Today I bought a bike. I bought a bike!

I saw one in the car boot sale yesterday that was, perhaps, a touch too small for me. Rather than buy it on the spot, I wanted to sleep on it so told the seller that I’d be back the next day.

The next day, the seller was nowhere to be seen. Probably a good thing, I thought, as I haven’t a clue about bikes and had still not decided between the car-boot one (for €40) and a new Decathlon model (at €99). At least this made my decision easy.

Off I toddled back to Decathlon positively foaming with excitement at the prospect of owning a bike. Let’s me be clear here: To many others (Squifter included) a bike is just a bike, it gets you from A-to-B. Not to me though: It’s a metaphor of a personal challenge that I recently overcame.

It seems like I’m the only person in the whole town that wears a helmet — and all bicycle helmets make a person look like, well, a helmet. But I don’t care because I’m riding my bike.

The way I always feel about helmets is this – I’d feel a right ‘helmet’ when my brain has been smashed against the inside of my skull and I can no longer even say the letter ‘h’, let alone ‘elmut’.

Could be worse lad. You in lycra makes me feel physically sick.
