As I look at finding a new job (as my contract comes to an end soon), the thing I am most excited about is that no longer will I have to spend most of my life on a bus. (First) Buses are horrible. They smell, the drivers are rude, they don’t know where they’re going, the buses leak scuzzy water on you (that happened today, annoyingly) and they’re about as comfortable as a skateboard made by stapling wheels to a plank of wood going down a rocky cliff.

Unfortunately, I live a few miles out of Bristol centre, so buses are the main form of transport for me. I can’t help daydreaming about getting a beautiful bicycle though and being all cool and that cycling about. (If it weren’t for those huge hills Bristol is famous for, I’d want to cycle into the centre!)

Previously, I’ve blogged about beautiful Beg Bicycles and pretty Pashley’s, so when I was contacted about the Sky Ride that’s happening this weekend, it made me think about bicycles, and by extension, what to wear. I know that these aren’t the most practical of dresses, but since when were dresses about practicality?

I really love the idea of Sky Ride – closing off some roads in a city to allow people to just cycle freely, without worrying about crazy drivers (another thing that puts me off quite a bit!) I’m going to be taking part in the Bath ride this weekend, which I’m quite excited about – let me know if you’re going too!

It’s been a few years since I rode a bike – it can’t be that difficult, can it? There must be a good reason theres the old saying…

I Want To Ride My Bicycle

I know that I need to get much fitter – not necessarily lose loads of weight (although it would be nice!) but to be a lot more toned up overall.

The boy, ever helpful, has suggested that I start cycling to and from work. Whitchurch to Clifton is about 5 miles, with at least two rather large hills in between. No thanks.


But! If I had a job that was a bit closer to home, I think I could manage this cycling lark. Especially if I had one of these lovely Pashley bicycles:

The Princess Classic – £495

The Princess Sovereign – £595

The Britannia – this one is probably my favourite – £575

Just need to find £600 now…
