Last month's Fyxomatosis bike swap clashed with the Swedish Church Christmas fete.Still, being an event not to be missed, I did the mad dash across town, from Toorak to Clifton Hill.It was well worth the sweat. A coffee, a snag and 2 sets of Weinman caliper brakes for a couple of bucks.But should I have purchased that Peugeot UE 10? I'm still wondering.
Having spent most of my working life at sea, as a sailor in the merchant marine,I now work ashore as a land lubber. My job as a cargo super involves a company car and a small amount of driving around, which I try to keep to a minimum.
I've always loved that old Yiddish expression' to schlepp' . I seem to spend half of my life schlepping stuff from point A to point B on a bike, so this is my view of the world from the saddle.
