This, I feel, is how to prioritise stealth purchasing for bike gear.

Start with the co-ordinating shoes.  The team strip can wait.

I thought this girl looked gorgeous on her bike.  There were many many girls on lovely bikes with baskets, backpacks, handbags, miniskirts ... Just wish I'd got a few more photos.

The guy in the foreground looks to be quite "excited" by her shoes.   :-X
It's a bit weird, but actually quite wonderful.

I was fairly excited by them myself, possibly not in 'that way' though.

I own a similar pair in purple.  It would be nice to have a matching bike.  N+1?

Marvellous.  Those bikes are still for hire around Darlo, but, sadly, I've never yet seen one on the road :(

Hire one!  Buy matching shoes!  I'll come with you?

What a jolly idea.  We could ride them around, looking for prey ;)

And here's the backstory to the bikes.

VeloDarlo!

Apparently they were brought in to try to encourage more lasses to cycle.

Great picture, no Hi-Vis or helmets in sight, the true spirit of cycling.
