Wheels of Colours

IMG_5400

Life, love, living not to mention exercise gets so much easier add a bit of bright colours to it. These cheerful repainted bikes - from Swedish company Kronan, who sells an updated version of a Swedish Army bike with design dating from the 1940s - I found outside a hotel when on holiday. And they surely set my mood for the rest of the day!

How about you, do you own a bike yourself? Do you use it regularly or is it a dust collector on wheels in your garage or garden shed? Is it colourful or neutral? Of modern design or with classic charm and quirks? Have you decorated it in a personal way or do you prefer to keep it basic? Do you have a dream bike, if so, what does it look like? Feel free to share!

I haven't owned a bike in years, but have been thinking of getting one again. It is really hilly where we live though, so it might have to be a holiday bike and live at someone elses house.

I used to be a really keen biker until these past years, it gives such great "free" exercise and clears the mind to ride a bike I think. Right now I'm waiting for a pre-used bike to arrive, can't be bothered with my old-not-very-comfortable-racing-bike anymore.

I think it sounds like a great idea to get a bike again, Poppy! Walk uphill and ride downhill is good exercise too...;)
