Even the word bicycle has an elegance about it and I truly love my bicycle called "Myfawny" . It was an instance attraction for me and I think MyFawny feels the same now there's a little give in her saddle . We've both relaxed with each other and that is really important when you own a classic bicycle. Myfawny the bicycle is not a light lady but is one of substance and in that substance is a gliding elegance with the ding ding if the sweetie shop bell.
I feel as if I should be wearing a Tweed jacket and a soft scarf with pictures of bicycles with baskets on it. I'm not one for flowing dresses or skirts maybe one day a beautiful tea dress with a tea cup print for the hot summer days.
I love this Winter scarf from Whitestuff.
Another essential for classic bicycle cycling is the opportunity to stop for tea , and uniformed cucumber sandwiches cut into triangles ~ crusts off . Travelling with a tea pot is a tad impractical unless one has been invented .
Also perhaps cake or a nice fruit salad as well for impromptu picnics .
What else could I take about on my travels , a picnic blanket and a good book ( for no one ever took a bad book with them did they ? Perhaps they did and it was a bad book that they hoped would get better ) I would also take my camera with me , I would like a in between camera in a nice shiny silver colour to shine in style , I would dream of being a National Geographic photographer photographing the lanes that I love so much.
And owning a nice sparkly dress is no barrier when you have a Pashley or a bicycle with an enclosed chain , everyone has to wear a sparkly dress when there is no need to as it will transform your day . Why save stuff for special occasions OK so you're not going to wear your wedding dress on the daily commute but I bet there are some people that will life is fun and we need to maintain that .
And now the glow and brilliance of Spring is starting to show itself I can sparkle in the sunlight .
Disclosure ~ the bicycle is mine all
Mine and has a really nice ding ding bell . the House of Fraser kindly sent me the sparkly dress .
