Olivia’s special bicycle

Olivia first caught our eye because of her french stripe top and little yellow satchel, but that was only the start. As she was proud to explain, there is a wonderful story behind her rusty and tired old bicycle.

So what was the story? Well, as Olivia explained “this was my grandmother’s bicycle, and when I was a little girl I used to sit on the rear pannier rack whilst my grandmother pedaled me around”. Olivia pointed at the rear rack, and as she did, we could almost imagine her as a child sitting there, smiling, as she glided along clinging to her grandmother’s coat. Now Olivia is all grown up, and owns her grandmother’s bicycle, which she is planning to restore with a new coat of green paint, so the memories and wheels can keep turning for years to come. Wonderful!
