I went on a “Cycle-Date” from East London to Richmond with the Boy and our friend Tyla on Saturday. I was pretty excited about this, as it would be my 1st ‘real’ riding experience in London (and beyond) on Frankie – something that was long overdue! The date-plan: meet Tyla at Richmond Station & then cycle along the River to Hampton Court Palace. The weather was kind enough to hold back on the rain that we’ve been having in London this week (huzzah!) – allowing me to wear my planned cycle-chic for the day 🙂 I raided my wardrobe and put this together: This was my 1st time cycling in […]
“Thank you!” Spring for finally showing your sunny face today… “Thank you!” Easter Holidays for giving me clear & quiet roads this morning… After not getting to ride over Easter, a cycle on Frankie was just what I needed to start up the (short) week. Left home at 08:00 in the sunshine & took a leisurely pace… clear roads meant that I wasn’t freaked by cars – I even managed not to get spooked by any Buses behind or in front of me. Cycling back at 18:00 was really lovely: sun was still out and everything looked rather nice in my corner of East London from the Vélo view… I’ve […]
After nearly a week of not riding I was back on Frankie* today. There was the plan of heading out for rides in the week but due to working late (boo) and meeting up with friends (yay!), it didn’t quite happen. It was great to get back on the Saddle today & continue finding my cycle legs. As it was just a casual ride to work out a cycle route, it called for casual cycle-chic – or my take on it at least… Hat: Missoni Track Top: Emilo Pucci for Adidas Scoop Neck Top: Topshop Jeans: Topshop Trainers: Adidas Bagwise – practical and the right size to fit in Frankie’s […]
I am now the proud owner of a Pashley Princess Classic! The day started off on a good note: no rain & bright sunshine – which is exactly what I’d hoped for… not to say that I’m going to be a fairweather rider, but I really didn’t want my 1st experience of riding through the city to be in the wind and rain. As the weather was nice but stil pretty cold, I went for the cycle-outfit that I thought would be practical for the weather, but still stylish (it was really too chilly for one of my new tea dresses): Coat: Warehouse Jeans: Topshop Vintage Saddle Bag: Absolute Vintage […]
