A Classic Adventure

Saturday night I was on another burlesque road trip down to Evesham for a private show along with Foxie la Roque, Lulu Belle Ferrari and Suzie Floozie (the best stage manager ever!).

A frosty start

After such a great night the following morning I was up, ready and excited for a Sunday full of fresh air and girlie vintage fun with BooBoo Kitty on her Kingston Hampton shopper Mavis and Lucille on her 1959 Raleigh Marlene, me on my Kingston Mayfair shopper Bernie and Martha on her vintage pink Raleigh Marmalade.

Marlene, Bernie and Marmalade

You just don your vintage wear and grab your bike and turn up, all for free! What a great way to spend a sunny Sunday afternoon with the gals.

We joined around 30 other people and some of their vintage and classic bikes ready for Nottingham's second secret classic bike ride.

Dressed vintage-cycling-glam and fuelled with a cup of tea to get us going we set off from West Bridgford for a cycling tour around Nottingham Trent River and it’s cycling paths around the city centre’s surrounding areas.

Luckily it was a bright and sunny day and even though the ground was frosty our cycling trip kept us cosy warm.

Ready to go...glam biking!

 Along the way we learned some of the local history and as we past the points of interest as well as chatting and giggling with each other along the way with a quick pit stop for an ice cream and a mirror check.

We stopped to refuel at the Games Workshop HQ, War Hammer as the restaurant and bar is open to the public. Us girlies we a little apprehensive as we didn’t know what to expect, but it was very lovely inside for some food and a drink.
Martha puckering up with a character of some sort that was popping out of the wall. Very erm…dapper!??

After that it wasn’t too far back to the start point where we called it a day and headed on home as by then we’d been out and about for about 4 hours.

I can’t wait for the next one which will hopefully be next spring and if you’re local or even if you’re not you should definitely take part in one in the future as it’s a great way to spend a Sunday getting some exercise and lots of fun too!
