The beach and bikes

There is somehing about the beach which seems to attract the most quirky bikes, at least here in Newcastle. It is where you would expect to see plenty of beach cruisers, and this gorgeous, new, retro-styled Schwinn did stand out with all its new shininess …and this delightful little Peugeot, complete with flowers on the basket and pink helmet. I would have loved to be able to see the other side of its cute little chainguard. To get an idea of the tiny size of this bike, look at the regular sized wheel of the bike in front of it …And this Raleigh MTB, complete with petrol powered motor …

While I do not like those petrol powered bikes for either their aesthetics or their noise, they provide mobility for some who might not otherwise have it.
