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’

Pink and Blue – Gender Student Chic

We were on foot when we saw him cruise past, and we obviously couldn’t let this nonchalantly cool dude escape!

After a short (but blisteringly fast) pursuit, we were lucky to catch him as he dismounted a few hundred yards up the road. Phew!

It turns out that Jordan is a gender studies research student at UCL, which makes his pink and blue bike all the more wonderful! A little research on our part revealed that pink used to be the colour for baby boys, and blue used to be associated with baby girls – a lot can change in century, but true cycle chic never goes out of style 😉
