I’m famous!

I was in the local paper yesterday – the print version rather than the online version. On Monday someone tweeted me this: (thanks, Steve Bloom!)

I decided to alert Aberdeen City Council to the article in a tweet:

A journalist saw my tweet to the council and sent me this:

I replied and yesterday there appeared this:


I said he could use the photo on my blog. Credit to my father for taking that. There’s a bit of poetic licence in the article. For instance, he says “cycling enthusiasts” (plural) but as far as I’m aware I’m the only one in Aberdeen who thinks the council could benefit from cargo bikes. I note he also refers to them as “hi-tech” but there’s nothing particularly hi-tech about Busby. I also don’t recall saying the last sentence but otherwise it’s pretty good.

  1. You deserve it, Rachel. Good on you making it to the papers.

    Busby doesn’t look hi-tech but it is sturdy and gets the job done, which is what matters.

    1. Thanks, Chait! He is sturdy and does a great job. Occasionally we wish he was equipped with a DVD-player, coffee machine and various other mod cons but mostly we’re happy with the way he is.

  2. Kudos … anything to get biking news in the mainstream.

  3. Good for you Rachel, you’re an inspiration and a trail blazer! I hope Aberdeen takes note! And the rest of the UK come to that… 🙂 xx
