A lot can can change in a few months

No updates for a while, but a few months on and a new season brings many changes so here we are in Bristol's Cultural Quarter to enjoy the cycling culture.
There's a Cycling Chic ride coming up on 4 September organised by Bristol Cycling Campaign - why not check it out?
Meanwhile I'll let the pictures do the talking. First, we'll set the scene:

Now this person could do with turning her cycle into a useful cycle

with the addtion of a basket
 Handy for carrying locks,  and all sorts of paraphernalia

 A useful bike:
 Nice boots! And a work bike!
 Or simply use a bag:
or no bag for this milk maid
OK - so what about the lycra? What should we wear to cycle - something nice and practical I'd say - well that's just about anything:
 Leather and lycra works well, and a crossbar is no deterrent for wearing a skirt
Something on your head maybe?
 or just a neat cap

Co-ordinating your colours is important
 But it's the little details that count, like a colourfule pair of shoes
Cycling is a sociacl thing and red lights give opportunities to chat:

Nice point! But it's the relaxed and carefree style that does it for me:
 as you cruise past the traffic or take your own line
 whatever position you like
 The children can tag-along too
While some are just on their way home from work
others are already on their way out for the night - with a basket coming in hand again

Look out for more information on the Chic Ride!
