Welcome the newest member to our family Binky! My new little Vintage Town Bike. I found her on eBay and as soon as I saw this little Town Bike I knew she had to be mine, the starting bid was £60 or a buy it now of £100, I didn't want the risk of auction and thought £100 for a Town Bike in such lovely condition (having just had a service) was a bargain!
You always run the risk of people being dishonest or bending the truth when buying anything on eBay but luckily for me the lady who sold her due to a house move was lovely and actually this town bike was more beautiful than I imagined, well loved and rides like a dream!
I always grew up having bikes and always went on weekly bike rides. There is something about having an old town bike with three simple gears and cute little wicket baskets that reminds me of being a little girl, so much so that I want to put little reflector bike spokes on Binky!
I've been on a few mini bike rides, one to pick some blackberries (I can't believe there are still some about!) and the other to feed the ducks with Beaux. He loved it, all I could hear was his excited "ooh wow, weee" behind me. So Binky my new old little vintage town bike has inspired me to add a new section to this blog, I will be sharing our family bike ride adventures with you and I can't wait!
