Push bikes

Anybody into pushbikes?

I have a modern bike and my 70s Viking I bought new, today I bought a classic Columbia made in Worksop.

Seems a bit special.

I have a Boardman road bike, having bought it specifically for a trip to France when four of us cycled from London-Paris for a mate's 50th ...

I did three months training for the trip and lost loads of weight and got a lot fitter, regularly doing 20 miles a day.

Since then however, when I tried to keep it up regularly, I got a succession of punctures and it's in the garage leaning against the wall currently, having had a couple of years off!

Thing is, I DO have plans to get out and about on it again when the weather gets slightly nicer as I really enjoyed it.

I have a couple of old bmx bikes that are worth a few quid now.


Started road biking just over a year ago on a second hand ebay bike and ended up doing almost 2000 miles last year.........

Distracted me from getting my car sorted ... but enjoyed it.

It's a small world.

Today I contacted someone selling period Campagnolo brakes on ebay.

He is located on the outskirts of Leicester and when I said I needed guidance because my specialty was old cars not bikes he asked what cars.

When I said Datsun 240Zs he said wow that's a coincidence my father-in-law had one and unfortunately he sold it before the prices started to rise. I asked what his name was and it was my old trackday car!!! I bought it in 1996.

I've got this hung on the wall, doesn't come out anywhere near as often as It should though to be honest, and tends to get used as a clothes horse, prefer the other with the 800cc engine fitted when the weathers nice 😂
