Mayor Boris has proved his proletarian potential by giving his goodwife a ride behind him on his bike.
But the only acceptable second seat on a bike is the croggy – or for the posh lot, the cross bar. The lady is then safely embraced and close enough for canoodling. Ladies’ bikes are useless for the purpose of course, which explains why modern females ride fellas’ bikes.
My pic shows Boris offering a couple of ladies a ride.
