What-ho Dames & Chaps! The Boy and I attended the Rugby London Tweed Run last Saturday – all of my last minute dashing around on Friday fell into place, so we were both more than ready for the day… phew!

Saint-Michel (Paris Métro) – 2004. If I remember the outfit correctly… Top: Urban Outfitters Skirt: Once a pair of Levi’s 501 made into a skirt! Sandals: Birkenstock I found this picture during the massive clear-out of my bedroom. It was taken in August 2004… Memories that come back: I’d just finished Uni & was out in Paris with 2 of my best friends for a short break / friends birthday celebration. This was long before the days of Lady Vélo happening, but take a look… even back then I sure had an eye for a pretty bike. Next time I’m there, I have to see Paris on two wheels […]
A bit later than expected – but this was how Berlin on a Bike went… Berlin itself is a wonderful city – but the one thing that really blew me away about the place was the cycle culture. In all honestly that was the 1st thing I noticed when we were heading to our hotel in the car. Bleary-eyed and tired (we’d been up since 3am that morning), I was staring out the passenger window and every other person I spotted was either on a Bike, or parking one up somewhere… already I was impressed. The initial plan was to rent Bikes from our hotel when we got there, but […]
Quick update – I’m off to Berlin tomorrow for a 5 day break… and some cycling should be involved along the way… The hotel that me and The Boy are staying in have a Cycle-Rental scheme, so we should be getting our bike-on in Berlin – this pleases me. Of course there will be photos & now that I finally have a decent mini-camera (well, Boy has loaned me his Ricoh) I can easily take pics while cycling – as lugging the D80 wasn’t an option. Hopefully see you soon with some European Cycling Adventures 🙂
About Lady Vélo
I started Vélo-City-Girl when I got my Pashley Princess in March 2010, after a ten year absence from the saddle. VCG is all about cycling and the many different forms it comes in, there is something for everyone.
