Celebrities on Bicycles - oh and Audrey Hepburn...

I'm feeling a bit guilty, I've not blogged forever! I should hang my head in shame and be forever banished from the bloggers community. Or perhaps not, I've been so incredibly busy with a couple of other projects and end of the school year and just life. Also, I blog for fun through my love (hic obsession) with bicycles so I suppose it's okay to occasionally fall off the wagon. However, I'm sorry all. It won't happen again, probably...

I feel like the chic cycling movement (not sure thats the right word but hey ho) is growing and now i see at least 1 or 2 Pashley's or similar, everybody is at it and it gives me such joy. Occasionally a bit too much joy as I'm prone to smiling at strange cyclists and staring and smiling. This is ok when I'm cycling but when I'm in the car or walking, not so much! Apparently there are over 500,000 journeys by bicycle in London every day so I shouldn't be surprised.

Ok, so it's easy to look good on a bicycle right? wrong - unless it's a Pashley in which case the job is done for you!!! However, for the likes of Beyonce, Hilary duff, Hanneli Mustaparta, Lily Cole, Mary Kate Olsen, Marisa Tomei and Helena Christensen it comes naturally - not that I'm jealous or anything...

How chic?
More good news, Mayor Boris Johnson has written to LCC confirming he's told Transport for London to review their Love London, Go Dutch campaign to work out how its principles can be incorporated into the design of new cycling schemes in the capital!
