Too Cool For School

The school-run doesn’t have to be stressful, or involve traffic jams and crazy driving outside the school gates.

This dad drops his offspring at nursery before heading into town for work. He rides a practical, Dutch utility bike, and gets around quickly by using London’s new network of Cycle Superhighways. Zero-emissions, plenty of fresh air, stress-free, and not a stitch of lycra to be seen!

This guys gets it – respect to you, sir

Straight Outta Leytonstone

Words fall short of expressing this gentleman’s sheer majesty.

From the over-spoked wheels, to the polished chrome rims, the custom easy-rider bars, to the mini wing-mirrors – forget cycle chic, this guy is cycle stylin’

Hoxton Moomintroll

The red-lined cape of a true superhero billows behind her majestic, retro BMX with matching crimson tyres!

That hat, where can I get one?!

One bike, four wheels?

From a distance it wasn’t clear if this was a bicycle or a quadcycle, but what it actually was proved to be far more interesting.

The gentleman – who was dressed for his destination, and not the journey (take a hint, lycra lovers) – had just swapped his bike’s original wheelset for a custom pair he’d had made. His bike is a classic Dutch Priest Bike, and the unique ‘kruisframe’ design was apparently invented to preserve a priest’s dignity as he rode to Church in his cassocks.

These days the bike is a comfortable, upright city run around, built for an unhurried gentleman who prizes elegance over speed. Sweet brogues, too!
