I Don't Believe in Peter Pan, Frankenstein or Superman

I have been developing a secret crush lately...

No, the object of my obsession is not the pretty blonde from the photograph, though that might have made this blog a whole lot more fun to a lot of you...anyways, no, it's not, so get over it. It's what she's holding onto!!! Isn't it adorable?  I love it! I want one! I am simply head over heels, madly in lust, butt crazy in love with the Dutchie Bicycle! It is the picture perfect of what I've always wished for in my first adult bike: stylish, fun, elegant, and with a splash of vintage. And I know this may seem crazy to some of you, but over the last few months, I have found myself to be completely infatuated with this Dutchie cutie, snapping pictures with my iphone left and right, spreading loads of confusion and irritation around me...trying to control my urges to touch, grab, steal! The point is, I want a bicycle!!! Is that clear??? I just want one! Make me a bicycle, Clown!!!
Or to make it clearer (Wedding Crashers, Hello??!!!), I have used the lyrics of our beloved songwriter and amazingly talented performer, Freddie Mercury, to express to you the direness of my need...

I don't believe in Peter Pan
Frankenstein or Superman
All I wanna do is

Bicycle bicycle bicycle
I want to ride my bicycle bicycle bicycle
I want to ride my bicycle
I want to ride my bike
I want to ride my bicycle
I want to ride my bicycle....

Okay, it must have sunken it by now. You've all shaken your booties to this song at an 80s party, don't lie, I saw you, and I was there, shaking it too.
So, I know I'm supposed to write about London gems, and I'm getting there, trust me, but I just thought I should share a couple of my personal iphone pics just to prove to you how obsessed I am.

Pretty cute, huh? I thought so...(I'm pretty sure the second one is only a display:)
Attention zesty bloggers! For all interested in purchasing a recycled vintage bicycle, here in London, look no further, cuz you found your gem, and it's called The Bicycle Workshop, located on All Saints Road near the Ladbroke Grove tube station. They offer tons of awesome services, from bike, lighting and dynamo sales, to repair, fixing and smart bike-owner's advice.
