A Happy Ending

Great news everyone! My bicycle and I have been reunited!

That’s right. After a week of searching everywhere I have finally managed to find the spare keys and free my bicycle from its chains… Well… To be more specific; my wife found the keys… after less than five minutes of looking… in the bowl were we keep the spare keys… The bowl I had forgotten about…

But details are not important. The important thing is that I have my bike once more and it did not involve risking arrest while attempting to saw through my own locks (but thank you for all the suggestions. They will come in handy the next time this inevitably happens again).

I didn’t even recognise the keys at first when my (wife held them out in front of me). It was only after successfully unlocking my bike that I was sure they were the right keys, at which point I proceeded to cheer loudly and fist pump the air. This coursed several nearby people to give me worried looks and take a few steps away. But I didn’t care. I was just happy, happy to be reunited with my faithful bicycle once more. I cycled off, with a warm feeling inside, thinking about how lucky I can be at times and how I will never let anything bad happen to my bike ever again… and then the bicycle chain snapped… and I nearly crashed.

    The chain breaking is your bike´s revenge for even considering abandoning her/him/it.

  2. Congratulations, Stu, so happy for you! Glad to hear that you have freed your beloved bike!

    I think your bike becomes a human. She/he/it likes to be written about :) I only wonder what the third story will be about? ;)

    Don’t forget to get the keys copied, so you’ll have a new set of spares wh you need them!
    Happy cycling :-)

    I agree with Alison. You never, ever should have contemplated abandoning your faithful steed…

    Haha, perhaps your bike was not actually missing you at all and was enjoying the rest :-)
