Julie Anne Kent of London is the proud owner of Princess Pinkerella, a True North bike built for her by Hugh Black a few years back.
Kent was a bit hesitant about showing her wheels, but felt encouraging people to talk about bikes, and then ride them, is a worthy endeavour.
She uses the Princess to commute, get groceries or just adventure.
Princess P. has travelled the streets of Vancouver, visited the west coast islands, drifted through jazz and folk festivals and even took part in this year's Paris-Ancaster race.
"She handled superbly. She's a faithful steed," said Kent.
