A group of women draped in vintage clothing were stuck for two hours outside Brewstone yesterday, trying to decipher which Pashley bike belonged to who.
The women, full of vegan cake, chai latte and zen, made their way out to find all the bikes lined up next to each other and had no way of identifying which one belonged to who.
Keen meditator Theresa Connell said: “It was so weird, we’re all so outwardly original that we never anticipated something like this could happen.
“We were so shocked by what we saw we barely remembered to blog about it.”
Aspiring beekeeper Cheryl Gray added: “I decided to take control of the situation because that’s what my dystopian fiction books tell me to do. I think.
“I knew I’d bought some artisan bread and vegan cheese, so figured I’d just peer into the bike basket, but all the baskets had the same thing in them. Being so original isn’t original. Oh my God, was that ironic? Love that.”
IPA blogger Annie Smith said: “I saw the bikes all lined up and adjusted my massive obnoxious glasses, not that it made a difference because they’re not prescription.
“Soon enough we all bonded over our hatred of people who drive cars and how Radiohead are cool, but the old stuff that no one else could ever have possibly heard was better, before adjourning for a flat white.
“By the time we came out they’d all been nicked anyway.”
