Cycle Chic

The weather has been great recently, and it's got me thinking of all my summer plans. I'm definitely going to do picnics in the evenings after work, go to a few festivals, and even take a few weekend road trips across the UK. One of the most important things on my summer list of things to do it ride a bike! I've been meaning to properly learn and I know even have a teacher willing to help me out.

So Londoners know just what a big part cycles play in the city, especially with Barclay Cycle Hire bikes dotted around the city so you can pick them up and drop them off whenever you want. It's a great idea, and Barclays Cycle Hire are now encourage women to take up cycling. 

This is done with a new series of videos, aimed at women, who are only 1/3 of cyclists on London Roads. There is a fantastic video, called Spin In Style, that looks at the more stylish side of cycling, featuring some of the cute accessories you can have while cycling, such as bags and helmets.

I was sent this super cute bag from Cycle Chic, and really love it. It'll be so easy to latch on to my bike - when I get one, which will hopefully be soon - and then turns into a cute bag for everyday life. I've actually been using it for everyday, such as work and shopping trips, and love it. It's super sturdy, and one that I'm confident will keep everything secure while I'm out cycling.

Are you a bike rider? Any tips for a newbie?

I learned to ride a bike when I was little, but I haven't been on one for years... a lot of people cycle in Vancouver, but it's really dangerous and there are frequent car/bike collisions, so I'm too nervous to get on the road :S The truth about ring though is that once you know how, you really never forget. Once you figure out the balance, you'll be set! Good luck- and let us know how it goes :)

Great look! I love the bright top :) I would use my bike more if I lived closer to the center of the city, but now it's better to take a bus :D xo ♥
