Chic and Ye Shall Find: First Winner

Cycle Chic Photo Shoot with Jopo Bicycles from Finland
A week has passed since the first out of five iconic jopos has been hidden. Laura was the lucky girl who guessed right and found the yellow jopo on Monday.  She told us about her experience with "Chic and Ye Shall Find" and how she likes her new ride...
"I had a day off and took a chance when I saw the contest on Facebook. I had a very strong feeling that the bike was hidden at or near Café Baisikeli. I jumped on my good old iron horse and rode from Nørrebro to Vesterbro. I had in no way expected that I would be first, so I had prepared myself to compete with three to four other people. That's why I learned the code by heart, so I would not have to waste time looking it up. But when I came, I was the only person there who knew about the Jopo. I opened the locks with shaky hands and I still could not really believe it - but then the lock opened and I was just really happy. There was a couple with their baby in the Café who were looking at me, amused. But I didn't care, I just jumped around with joy! The jopo is really fun! I'm really looking forward to riding it and it looks so cool! I am a very happy winner."
Could we tell your story next week? A new jopo is being hidden in a secret location in Copenhagen as we speak. So stop by tomorrow for the first hint!

I'm sure that this is important and beautiful prose, but being dark green on black I cannot read it.
