Bicycle Network‘s Ride On magazine recently reviewed the Banjo Brothers Metro Backpack along with other waterproof backpacks produced by various brands. It came out a winner and was recommended as the best value backpack.
The reviewer said:
the Banjo Brothers Metro Backpack features a ‘hanging liner’ making them waterproof as there are no seams through to the outside to allow water to leach in;
the bag represents exceptional value for money;
solid construction and thoughtful design;
the Metro Backpack is the smallest backpack from the Banjo Brothers range but it still offers a huge amount of internal and external pockets and is big enough for clothes, shoes, lock, laptop and more.
The June/July edition of RideOn Magazine included a review of the book Heels on Wheels by Katie Dailey.
‘I wish I’d had this book when I first started riding. While it includes general tips, such as how to stay visible on the roads, tighten brakes and wrap handlebars, Heels on Wheels is specifically for women eager to become bike commuters….Dailey’s style is clear and informative, with a good measure of sass to prevent the book reading like an instruction manual. This pretty, practical guide is ideal for ladies new to inner-city riding.’
