We are in Bon Accord visiting friends, Ruzter and K, who were kind enough to take us to Edmonton to do some shopping on Thursday. Ikea is always a destination of choice when there is one nearby.
I also wanted to visit Red Bike and United Cycle since they were mention by Sarah, of Girls and Bicycles fame. United Cycle was interesting, but I really liked Red Bike. For one thing, I prefer small independent stores and this one was near a residential neighbourhood, not a commercial strip. The gentleman I spoke to was very patient and tho' I think he knew I wasn't ready to buy anything, he was happy to send me off to test drive a Pashley and a Batavus.
Since I never change gears now on my 21-speed bike, the single-speed Batavus was the one I would have bought, tho' the Pashley was lovely too.
