Boris's bike

by OldRidgeback   June 18, 2014  

I saw Boris the other week pedalling through central London. He does make for rather a comical sight in his suit and with his helmet slightly askew. But he does cycle, which is a lot more than other senior political faces do:

Did you notice what the bike was? It was reported that the one he rode for many years broke its frame a while back, just wondering what he replaced it with?

He's been seen riding a Boardman hybrid, which is apparently on loan via Mr Boardman himself. Terms of loan period are assumed to be quite flexible!

It was a hybrid, that much I can say.
