I've grown a little obsessed with bikes recently, ever since I've been riding my bike around I've noticed other people's bikes and just drooled over them. Manchester features some gorgeous bikes - I might have to start photographing them. However, not enough ladies are riding bikes, a bicycle will improve your life so much. I live a 15 minute bike ride from Manchester city centre, and I would usually take the bus or the train in but that can cost up to £4.50. I've been riding every day for just over a month now and my fitness has noticeably improved, I can ride up hills quickly without stopping when initially I had to get off and push. So, I'm going to show you some bikes which I think are beautiful and some nice websites I've come across to get you inspired to ride a bike more!
