Whitley Bay In Regular Clothes
Number Four - The Busy Mum:
- Extremely sensible, big-grin inducing bike? Check!
- Sensible luggage capacity? Check!
- Sensible, every-day clothes? Check!
- Cotton-bag-over-shoulder-flower-in-hair? Check!
- Sleeve of child’s raincoat poking out of that bag? Check!
- Handlebar mounted child seat? Check!
- Child? Fail! Actually, the child was just out of camera shot on his / her (what do I know?) own bike. Probably less than three years old, and already on two wheels, without stabilisers! Check!
It’s one of Whitley Bay’s cycling mums - I see her around all the time, but even at a mum’s sedate pace, by the time I get my camera out, she’s usually in the distance. Even slow cycling is surprisingly quick!
