My ‘Lexus’ bicycle

I managed to track down the sort of cycle I was after on Gumtree, am now the owner of a two year old ‘Ridgeway World Voyage.’ It’s a beauty of a touring bike which is comfortable and oh so so smooth; it more glides than rolls. The move from my skinny-tyred aluminium speed-freak to this broader-tyred Reynolds framed distance-eater, feels like moving from a Lotus to a Lexus, loving it. Can’t wait for the weekend when I can pedal forth into the Autumnal county laneage of Berkshire and Hampshire.
Twenty seven gears, all controllable from the brake levers, additional brake levers on the tops for a change of riding position when desired. Classic retro looking, double buttted Reynolds steel construction for an efficient but compliant frame. Feeling really blessed.
