Carradice have been one of our stockists since we first opened shop – we just love the fact that their durable and stylish bags are still handmade in Lancashire, Nelson.

Happy Ride to Work Day!
We hope your ride was as glamorous as Audrey Hepburn riding to work around Paramount Studios with her cute pooch Mr Famous.

We’re gearing up for Ride to Work Day tomorrow – are you excited too?
This year we’re riding to the City of Yarra Ride to Work Day community breakfast at Edinburgh Gardens, North Fitzroy. We’re sponsoring some fun spot prizes for stylish cyclists – skirt garters for the ladies who are cycling in their skirted finery and fun bells for those with bell-less bikes.
You may even spot Cr Alison Clarke, the Mayor of the City of Yarra, in a bespoke Pageant Queen Reflective Sash. Cr Clarke is a mad keen cyclist and rides an electric Gazelle bike to her meetings as it’s faster and more convenient than driving from place to place. What a great Ride to Work Day ambassador!
See you tomorrow!

So it’s not the most flattering photo of the Mayor of London. But what we wanted to show was that even a powerful politican who’s often in the public eye thinks it’s a good idea to ride a bike to work (or anywhere). He also gave his name to the popular Barclays Cycle Hire scheme in London – better known as the Boris Bikes.

Join the party from 10-4pm at Taylor Square, Darlinghurst (on the Bourke Street cycleway cnr of Bourke Street and Oxford Street Darlinghurst).
There will be food, coffee, music, games and workshops. There’s also free bike mechanics and free valet bike parking thanks to the City of Sydney. Some of our goodies will be available for sale at the market stall run by Bicycle Film Festival Sydney, so make sure you drop in to this fabulous event.

Trust the Danes to arrive in style on bikes to meet the Queen.
Denmark’s first ever female prime minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt and ministers from the Liberal party decided to arrive at the Queen’s residence on Velorbis Victoria Classic ladies and Velorbis Churchill Classic gents bicycles.
You can watch the video here (it’s in Danish).
The Velorbis bicycles are part of a large Velorbis bicycle fleet available for politicians to use for getting to and from meetings at various locations in central Copenhagen. The new government has announced that it will integrate green policies as a main element of their administration in order to make Copenhagen even more bicycle friendly. We can’t wait to see what they come up with!

This week we’re doing a series of post about cycling to work, to help get you in the mood for Ride to Work Day next Wednesday 12 October.
To start us off, check out the video showing how commuters to Kansai station in Japan park their bikes in the morning rush hour with a push of a button.
We’re so jealous! Five seconds to park your bike safely rather than searching for a free lamp-post. Plus we love the stair-side conveyer belt for bikes.

After a winter hiatus, we’re back at Blackbird Market next Saturday 8 October. It’s a lovely local market held monthly in The Workers Club and features up and coming contemporary fashion and jewellery design, vintage clothing, live music, DJs and delicious food and drink – all on a beautiful afternoon.

We love this pretty video showcasing the bike collaboration between Kate Space and New York vintage bike shop Adeline Adeline. Perfect spring cycling inspiration!

The guest posts are all written by young parents to share their experiences with the Baby Bunting Facebook community. Previous topics have included eating out with kids and express beauty tips for busy mothers.
My contribution is a perfect amalgamation of my interests – Melbourne, babies, cycling, fun things to do around town and places to eat out. Entitled ‘Where to ride, play and eat with your tot‘ I decided to do a slightly different take on the ‘places to go and things to do with kids’ angle as I’ve picked out places based on whether they are accessible by bike.
Have a read of our guest post here. The post doesn’t include any of the links so for ease of reference here are all the places linked for you:

Food and cycling are probably our two favourite things, which is why we’re so excited to hear about ‘The Moving Feast’, a celebration of food and cycling in Sydney.
The new event is taking place on Saturday 24 September at 9am which is 350.org‘s Moving Planet day – so it’s also a day to promote moving away from fossil fuels (and taking our food and transport systems with us!)
Two groups will cycle along two separate routes (East Side and West Side rides) visiting Sydney’s farmer’s markets and food hot spots on the way. The rides will end with a party in Prince Alfred Park at midday so that you can enjoy your food with your new friends!

For the hard-core cyclists there is the traditional 55km Classic Ride but this year there is also a shorter 16km City Ride, a more leisurely amble which will feature many of the highlights of the longer ride (including riding over the Sydney Harbour Bridge).
You can register for the ride here. $5 of each entry fee goes to charity and this year the Spring Cycle is proudly supporting 3 charities:
To make the event a really fun day out, Bicycle NSW are running several competitions including a best-dressed competition. You could opt for a super-stylish Parisien look, deck yourself out in head-to-toe tweed, dress as your favourite super hero or go as way out as you can.
The winner receives a $250 voucher to spend with us! So what are you waiting for?

Look at all the fun places you can go on your bike in Sydney!
