Pedal in Pleats

I am loving this seasons trend for pretty ballerina style pleats. Soft, light-weight fabrics with lots of movement are not only cool and comfortable to cycle in but make you feel wonderfully feminine. I have my eye on all 3 of these dreamy pieces for spring cycling on my pastel blue Pashley Poppy...

The Vintage Box Bags... these babies are back!

We are proud to present The Vintage Box bags, the first product in our new brand of bicycle accessories, The Bicycle Muse. The Vintage box bags are based on a wonderfully retro design that used to accompany the  Raleigh shoppers and Moulton bikes of the 60's and 70's.

When I first started 3 years ago I managed to source some old stock of these iconic bags and they soon became firm favourite with customers as well as being featured in Fasion magazines from Vogue to The Times Style. However the stock soon ran out so to save disappointment we decided to bring these baby's back to life ourselves...

The Bicycle Muse brand will provide the fashion-conscious cyclist with classic, stylish, functional cycling accessories combining vintage charm with modern day practicality.

We have improved the design of the box bags making them much more durable and weatherproof and the design now enables them to flat pack so you can store them away easily when they are not on bike.

We have also added a touch of class by using real leather for the straps and the lovely bags are as green as cycling itself by being made here in England.

 These bags have so much character we couldn't help but name them...



They look fabulous on Pashley's,  traditional or Dutch  bikes but look equally lovely on more modern bikes.
They can be left on the bike, if your bike is locked somewhere safe, or can be easily unattached by the buckles. They are the perfect size for your lock, handbag and waterproof or a few groceries. And have the advantage over a basket that the lid fastens down securely so people can't swipe your belongings as you cycle by.

All in all the ideal spring/summer bike accessory. Available from for £44.99.
