A song from long ago

I have been spending time riding rather than blogging. My 44th birthday passed the other day when the Olympics started. Forty four on eight eight ought eight, has to have some good number mo-jo.

As I was devising a way to make my summer ride easier It reminded me of an old Pink Floyd song called "Bike" which is almost as old as I am.

The song opens with these words:

I've got a bike. You can ride it if you like. It's got a basket, a bell that rings and Things to make it look good. I'd give it to you if I could, but I borrowed it.

I think remembering Syd Barrett's contribution to music and my life's soundtrack can't make matters worse.

I don't think that's quite the kind of bike Syd had in mind!

Belated happy birthday
