Mrs Parata loves riding her old bike to town. It gives her the chance to chat to everyone she meets and gives her some great exercise at the same time. The only problem is that this bike is a bit unreliable, with its wonky pedals and cardboard carrier. When her well-meaning son steps in to remedy things it only seems to make matters worse and pretty soon Mrs Parata's life turns upside down.
