What was up last Wednesday? The 90s felt back in the air. I saw Flea* from the Red Hot Chilli peppers blaze onto Newport Road, all flowing dreadlocks and billowing climbing pants with a bike the wrong side of neon. I passed a car and heard ‘Loaded’ by Primal Scream (Blimey – that brought back memories. Good ones, too). I loved the 90s. It was the decade that I discovered mountain biking, climbing, sea kayaking, travel and Belgian beer. To top it off, I spotted the bike above parked on Queen Street. Maybe its time to dig out all those purple anodised bits and restore my Orange P7. Does anyone have any thumbies?
*It wasn’t really Flea and the dreadlocks give it away. But boy, he was a dead ringer.
