How has your weekend been so far ? There are two reasons for this post. One is to show you my new bike. I am beyond excited about it as I’ve wanted one for ages. Everyone else in the family has one so I have felt a bit left out when they’ve all cycled off for a little road trip. Not anymore.
I haven’t stopped since I got it – cycling is the new running. One of my the stipulations was a basket on the front so that I can pop to the shops or visit my family with cake…. more on that in a minute…
On this trip I was on the way back from the local garden centre ( far more appealing than night clubs these days ) and stopped off to take a few photos. The bike is designed by Victoria Pendleton and I chose the mint green as this colour would always be my first choice as its subtle and inspired by times gone by.
It has seven gears by the handle at are really easy to change too. Whoop ! You might have guessed that I’m a bit in love with it ? You’d be right.
I left half of the lemon drizzle here for my Mum with the edible flowers and we took half for a long journey. It’s something that I had wanted to try out for ages and it was fun decorating with the pansies, violas and marigold petals – think next year I will try growing some so they are at hand. The lavender was just for extra aroma, although lavender and lemon works well together as a cake too. If you’d like the recipe then leave me a comment and I will get it over to you in two shakes of a lambs tail ! I hope you like it ?
Have a good one …
