Uppsala is the name of my new bike.
She rides like a dream and although she only has 1 gear,
Her chain guard is probably her most magnificent feature, but I also love her
wings and her secret compartment which can hold keys, money
and any treasures I may find along the way.
Can you guess where it is?
She is a Hermes bike.
Apparently one of the first Swedish bike brands and made in Uppsla
(a university town above Stockholm) until the 1930's.
Does that mean she is that old?
I was thinking she was from the 50's or 60's??
Does anyone know anything about these bikes?
Oh, and as we are discussing bikes (again!),
here is a fantastic film.
City Councils- Please watch, be inspired, evolve!
I get so inspired and excited when I see footage like this and dream that one day all cities will be as safe and peaceful and as clever as Copenhagen.
