Being Bikeminded

You can follow my day to day cycling activities on my bike blog,

Sorry but allow me some time to compose myself.

A little more time, please.

…and a little more.

OK, never mind. I can’t anymore. This is my last week with Dorothy, my Brompton. Over the past 2 months, it has climbed the hills of Richmond Park, strolled around Imperial Wharf, circulated around Kensington, enjoyed many stops and breaks at various cafés in Chelsea and always left me a sadistic smile on my face every time I weaved through London’s traffic.

What more can I add to my brilliant bike? It has already got a starring role on my Bikeminded blog and has relegated my other bike, Murray, to second fiddle. Instead, here’s a breakdown of the numbers during the my time with my bike.
