The Cycle Show 2009
It's that time of year again and Earls court is awash with all things bicycle from 8th-11th Oct. Lavinia and myself popped down to check out what's new in the world 2 wheels.
As we arrived the new Cycle Hire bikes were being unveiled and we were one of the first to hop on and have a go. They are an attractive navy blue colour, they feel sturdy and strong and very pleasant to ride. We suggest our Navy Blue Bern Baker as the perfect helmet to match them.
We met Anthony from I Bike London with his rather fabulously colourful collection of, I bike London, T-shirts. A simple but very effective concept that celebrates the vibrant, dynamic cycling culture and community in London. We liked them so much we hope to be selling some of our fave colours very soon so watch this space.
We also got very excited by Knog's forthcoming Bicycle lock. At last a cool bike lock and a keyless one at that... Pic courtesy of Urban velo. And all their wonderful lights were flashing, Check out this season's favourites the Beetle and the Skink.
Our friends Two and fro were unloading their vintage ambulance with all their wonderful products as we arrived bringing further cool to the event. Check out their Reflective spats, claqs and cream cycling hat for this Autumns cycling must haves.
So all in all a good event. But perhaps a slight overload of brand new, brightly coloured, expensive looking bikes. Riding home I spotted a bike that to me was every bit as Cyclechic. A Raleigh shopper Piazza, this vintage gem was the perfect antidote to a busy day of shiny and new.
