State of Style for Swedish TV

 

 

Last February I was asked to chat about cycling and cyclechic.co.uk for a Swedish TV show called The State of Style. It was a great day working with the all female crew who filmed and directed and I also had the pleasure of Lady Velo joining me for a cycle ride along the river. (It was so blinkin' freezing however so dont look too close or you may be able to see that my lips are turning blue). In the cycling scenes I am riding my new (ish) Bisou from Tokyobikes with Wald Basket and of course classic Bern helmet. Lady Velo is riding her handsome Pashley and sports a Bobbin Straw pannier. Hope you enjoy!

The Guardian Magazine



We were chuffed to be featured amongst a smorgasbord of stylish cycling clobber in the Guardian Magazine's feature, Beyond the Velodrome, at the weekend. It's great to see that the surge of excitement from the Olympics has filtered through to everyday cycling. I have a noticed a lot of friends have recently taken up cycling and the roads seem busier than ever with beautiful bicyclists. Great stuff. So don't get put off by the chilly wind of an autumn morning or a spot of drizzle. Take a look at the full Guardian picks, get prepared and enjoy cycling throughout the seasons.

Our products that made it onto the list...
 

The Bobbin Retro Front Light, £24.99 - am so glad they featured this! This beautiful bicycle lights are new in and I have just attached one to my Pashely Poppy. The perfect bike light for a vintage style bike that doesn't come with a Dynamo. It looks great on the bike and shines like beacon.




The Linus Sac Pannier, £44.99. We have been having a love affair with this pannier bag here at Cyclechic, ever since it washed up on UK shores from sunny California. It seems the Guardian feel the same way claiming "this is the most stylish pannier we've ever seen" It comes in Navy, Beige, and Khaki.





And lastly but not leastly... The Georgia in Dublin Leggits £49.99 - Fantastic for avoiding soggy feet syndrome and look rather hot to trot too.

Big up for Boneshaker Magazine

What a delightful addition to the somewhat uninspiring, existing selection of cycling magazines. Boneshaker is beautifully designed with some really intesring artwork- I adore this picture from last months edition. It has some really great articles about cycling and cycling culture. It seems more about the human stories associated with cycling than technical bike info which makes for a really entertaining read.

Sunday Times Cycle Girl 21.11.10



 
Was over the moon to be asked write a piece for The Sunday Times Cycling column last week.  My article was about ladies Bike, what exactly us girls want from our bikes and how the market if beginning to react to our needs ...


Here's a snippet...


"We want a touch of vintage charm. Cycling hasn't always been about chunky calves and going hell for leather. It used to be regarded as graceful and calm. Bicycles had manners and finesse not mud spattered suspension forks"
