Thanks to Barb from Portobello for sharing her bikeable profile!
Tell us about your bike
My bike is a Giant Escape W, bought last year as a 50th birthday present. I mainly chose it though because of its integral bell on the gearshift.
How would you describe your bikeable style?
Definitely tortoise. But I get there.
Favorite bikeable accessory
My pannier. It’s a lockable box. And bungee straps.
Favorite cycling route or trip
The canal path to Ratho or the route around Loch Katrine. Always enjoy heading along the East Lothian Coast
Scottish weather cycling tip
Silk gloves worn under normal gloves. And overshoes, although this winter has been so mild I’ve not needed them.
