As some of my older followers will know I had a tough time earlier in the year with everything around me, and I invested in a bike as, well, I suppose as a way of symbolising hope in the near future. I met these amazing people in my local bike shop as a result and I created this poster as a thanks. I was going to send them the above version, however realised it had spelling errors so I fixed it and the following version can be seen in my portfolio. However, when I printed it off and trekked over a few months later I discovered it closed and abandoned, with a note on the window explaining that due to the hard economic climate; the shop, like so many others in the high street, had to be closed. I had to peer through the windows in disbelief just to make sure, I knew it was silly. Of course I wasn’t I going to find Andy the bike man suddenly appear and tell me they managed to find enough money to reopen. I guess, they had been there for so long and had so much life in them. It was strange to see such an empty, dark version of what was once was. I hope that Andy and all the other employees of Freewheelin’ have found better and brighter things.
