My favourite cycling event of the year swung around again last Saturday: the sixth annual London Tweed Run! Although VCG was there in spirit last year, I was counting down the days to taking part in the ride this time. With the temperature hitting 23 degrees, organiser Ted Young-Ing couldn’t have chosen a better day for the event… which also led to a last moment change of my planned outfit for the day. I doff my cap to those who preserved in full tweed, but I suspect I would have baked in Central London with the suit I had in mind! To be perfectly honest, my cyclestyle for the day faded […]
It’s been a little while since I’ve put one of these together and my CycleStyle radar has been going off like mad with clothing and accessories being brought to my attention! With Spring attempting to make an appearance and me itching to get out and do some longer rides (especially on my new bike) here’s a little selection of what’s caught my eye… 1) Women’s Cotton Rain Trousers – Vulpine: These trousers are a perfect fit for both on and off the saddle. Made from Epic Cotton, they’re breathable, water resistant and designed to withstand tough rides… yet style has not been sacrificed in the design. Vulpine’s Cotton Rain Trousers […]
What better way to mark Bike Week in the UK by being out on the saddle? It was a tale of two bicycles for me: a day on a Boris Bike rather far away from home, and another going for a spin around Shoreditch on my Pashley resulting in a street-fashion shoot… It was an early start on Tuesday morning, catching the train up to Berkshire to film with The Cycle Show. I spent the day with the crew at the Transport Research Laboratory in Wokingham. We filmed a bicycle safety feature at TRL. It was fantastic and an education to be there, and check out the safer cycling innovations […]
From an email I received from Horst A. Friedrichs back in May 2011 which lead to some amazing photo-shoots & meetings: fast forward to March 2012 and ‘Cycle Style’ the book has been published… with a rather familiar ‘Lady’ with a Pashley on the back cover. At the risk of sounding like a gushing mess, this is one of the best things to have happened to me! I was over the moon when Horst asked me to be a part of his project, but being the cover girl on the book has completely blown me away. The book is beautiful, with its varied mix of London Cyclists across 192 pages. Horst has done such an […]
With just over a month to go, the excitement for the release of Cycle Style is building up… and the promo video for the book is now online! Meeting with Filip Milovac in December to do my bit for the shoot was an absolute blast, so seeing the finished product earlier this week was fantastic. Filip & Horst have done an amazing job with this, incorporating some of the portraits that will be included in Cycle Style. Enjoy the video – and see if you can spot some familiar faces in there too… Cycle Style from Filip Milovac on Vimeo.
Do you remember that Photo-Shoot that me and my Pashley took part in last Summer? Well, it was for Horst A. Friedrichs third book, ‘Cycle Style’, which celebrates the brilliant and varied fashion in London’s cycling scene. I’m very pleased to finally be able to tell you that I’m going to be in the book, along with featuring on the back cover too! Horst and his assistant Filip Milovac contacted to let me know the news, and to ask me to be in the promo-video for the book launch. I was over the moon to know I’d made it into ‘Cycle Style’, and was bouncing off the walls about the cover… that’s something I […]
