On Monday evening John Pippin cycled into town with my new old bike. A single speed classic rod brake Raleigh, I was very excited to take ownership of it. I can’t remember if it was picked up at the tip, or at the Emmaus charity shop, but it was one of several which John had collected in his shed. He very kindly spruced it up for me, so that whilst the frame and mudguards still need attention, everything else is good to go. It is very comfortable to ride, and now I just need to get some panniers and a basket to make it the perfect bike for pottering around Cambridge!
