Under the river…

It was lunch time and I wanted some tea, so I went down the steps and into Fforest (my favourite coffee shop) and filled up a pot. It was at that point I noticed something tucked away in the corner. A shiny looking bike, I didn’t recognise any bits on the bike so I decided to find out a bit more by talking to the owner, Robbie.

It turns out that the bike was actually salvaged from the river, he saw the potential in it and decided to do it up, and with a bit of sand paper and a lick of paint he managed to transform a geared bike into a fixed gear. He spent some cash on a few new bits, but if a fifteen year old can salvage and recycle something like this, then I think there is a good lesson for the rest of us…
