bicycle portraits

i’m not sure why it has taken me this long to talk about the awesome bicycle portraits project by stan engelbrecht and nic grobler. i’ve read about it many times, having been blogged by some of my favourites – lucky pony, fixed gear cape town, skinny laminx. but it wasn’t until i came across andrew boraine’s blog post that i thought more about the message than the aesthetics (a bad habit, my eyes > my brain most of the time.)

radley london

this is how to sell me something – pair nice accessories with beautiful bikes. done! sold! shoes & bags from radley london, images from their spring/summer 2010 catalogue. love that little scottie in their logo…

the tweed run

this put a big smile on my face this morning

“What ho! 400 of London’s most sartorial Gents and most finely attired Ladies gathered in Chelsea on Saturday for the Tweed Run 2010 … this weekend brought bright sun and blue skies for a truly unique group ride around London.”

bicycles

i already have a bicycle (which i love – it’s a black & white cruiser with white tyres) but i just can’t help looking at bicycle sites. the latest one, which my brother sent me, is globe bicycles. there’s something about white/cream tyres that makes everything classier, non?

copenhagen + bicycles

copenhagen-bikes

if you’ve ever been to copenhagen, you’d understand. on my first day there i stood on a street corner for about 5 minutes watching the hordes of people on bicycles – thinking there was some kind of biking rally going on (in the middle of winter). no, that’s just how you get around in copenhagen. and it’s AWESOME.
