View Full Version : A Saturday ride worth remembering

Saturday morning, a couple of week ago, I went out for a ride for a coffee.

Pulled up on the foot path in front of this place, near the podiatrist in Ashburton.

and as you do. I notice this old dear on a mobile chair heading down the footpath towards me, an think anything of it, and go in a order a coffee, then take a seat at the front counter of the shop to watch the world go by and read the paper.

Then this is what made my day....

The old dear pulls up on her black and chrome ride, in front of my bike, walks into the cake shop, orders a coffee and sits a the other end of the same counter where I am, look at me and smile....

My God, I've turn granny into a café cruser..... :)

Perhaps an all weather incontince pad like hers would be good for those sudden brakes wet surface
