Always wanted drops

my mum in the early 40s on her bike

A few weeks I found this great photo of my Mum outside her childhood home in Cloister Crofts, Leamington Spa (it all looks very different now!). A month before Mum died, she was asking me all sorts of questions about cycling, and revealed that she’d always wanted a bike with drop handlebars.

Still, that looks like a classy Brooks saddle and saddlebag there, so not all bad!
