What! No spokey dokeys! What a fashion faux-pas!
Winter had arrived in the land of Kernow. Along with it came wet roads and cool winds.

I was pleasantly surprised by the bike. They are Raleigh Red or Dead bikes of which we have "acquired" a large number. They work very well as a learn to ride bike for our ladies, having a low crossbar and bottom bracket, and reasonable high bars.

At 16kg, definitely not one for the weight weenies! Also, superwoman goes shopping (note the ad copy).
