Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

Walking the bike

 
When I saw this bike upright on a stand I thought someone was fixing it and then I looked a little closer. It was an advert for a bike repair shop in Berlin. If I had waited a fraction of a second later to take the photo, then I could have had someone standing on the seat.

  1. Hmmmm... Guess if that bike shop is trying to get some attention, that may be the way to do it...

  3. Funny way to advertise, reminds me of a rear up horse a bit.

  4. Do that over here and some one would have nicked it.

  5. When someone is sitting in that seat, do they look like they're popping a wheelie? :-)

  6. Very clever way of advertising a shop. It certainly is eye catching in its up in the air position!

  9. What a clever idea and also the stick person holding the wrench on the bar. Great advertisement. We had a fella up in Saint John that had a half a car of the front of his store and it was quite unique. Have a wonderful day. I love your background photo.

  10. Not a bad idea to attract people ! I have to admit that since my son lives in Amsterdam I am allergic to bicycles ! Each family has at least 3 bikes and they run you over ! I intend to make a testament before going there again, lol !

  11. Walking the bike doesn't quite have the same ring as walking the dog, but it looks WAY more interesting!
