Cyclechic picks the Kit bags for the Financial Times Magazine


We were very pleased to be asked by the Financial Times to pick our ideal kit bag for stylish cycling this Autumn.  I know the less than clement weather can make you feel like leaving the bike at home but on a fresh crisp autumn day being out and about on your bike can be wonderful so why not get inspired....

Pashley Sonnet Bliss
Hand-built in Statford-upon-Avon, this gorgeous claret-and-ivory bicycle has five gears, dynamo lighting and a frame-fitting lock. Pashley.co.uk, £595

Cherry Pine Deluxe Shopper
This chic, 1940s-inspired satchel simply clips on to the bicycle’s rear rack and, when removed, doubles up as a great day bag. £40, Cyclechic.co.uk

Lumatwill Cape
This beautifully tailored cape has reflective Lumatwill yarn sewn into the fabric, alerting traffic to your presence by night. Made to order by Dashing Tweeds & Hardy Amies, £400, dashingtweeds.co.uk
