Introducing Sarah Imm from Vélo-à-Porter

We’re excited to announce that fashion and cycling blogger Vélo-à-Porter will be guest posting for CycleStyle in the coming months.
Sarah Imm is the brains behind the popular blog – and is fact a customer of ours! The goal of Vélo-à-Porter is to inspire and encourage more women to bicycle as lifestyle, not just as sport. Sarah’ style is so inspiring, particularly as she gets about town with her children.
In this post, she tells us about her Fridays with her son on the Nihola, a cargo tricycle.

CycleStyle spotted Mikena at Flinders Street Station


We spotted Mikena at Flinders Street station. She’s from Boston originally and now lives in East Brunswick. Today she’d ridden from East Brunswick along the Capital City Trail to visit her friends in Footscray, then took the train back into the city before riding home again. Just goes to show that riding some of the way is ok!

Love her bright bike and helmet and edgy cycling outfit too!

Fund Iva Jean’s newest collection on Kickstarter

One of our exclusive brands Iva Jean are funding their newest collection through Kickstarter and need your support.
If Iva Jean are successful in meeting their goal of $50,000, they will be able to put our newest pieces into production. This includes two new pant styles, the City Legging and Trouser, as well as four new ultrafine merino wool tops, the Racer Tunic and Tank, Raglan Long and Short Sleeve.

We particularly like the look the Tunic, a modified racer back dress designed to work alone or layered in colder months. It has a generous cut for movement and zipped pockets for your cash, keys or phone. The Tunic is constructed using 100% ultrafine merino wool and feels so good on. This wool has a soft touch and natural performance qualities including odor resistance, temperature control, and water repellency.

Pair the tunic with the City Legging, which provides a slim silhouette perfect for layering or a tailored look. Constructed of a high performance, four-way stretch (and office appropriate) fabric, they’ve designed the legging to have a high waist, skinny leg, and side zipper for easy entrance.

You can get yours when you support Iva Jean on Kickstarter. Help Iva Jean bring this collection to life!

As many of you know, Kickstarter is a crowdfunding platform that allows independent artists, designers, filmmakers and more to bring life to their project. There is a minimum donation of just $1 and rewards for funding of $25+.

Winter cycle chic with a hooded parka

Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean you can’t get warm and cosy on your bike. Just rug up in a hooded parka, faux fur lining and pom poms optional and ride with a big smile on your face!

Cycling cape

Capes are such elegant garments, particularly when on a bike. Their swishy, draped effect are shown off well when you breeze along the road on your bike. 

Rainbow bright cycle chic




Brighten up your winter ride with a fabulous mishmash of rainbow colours from head to toe – and top it off with a cosy beanie with flying braids.

In the Navy

Nothing says cycle chic more than a sleek navy blue ensemble – in this case, skinny jeans, a casual knit and a brass-buttoned blazer make up a nautical and nice look. But it’s the unexpected details of those killer shoes (and of course the beautiful smile) that makes this outfit just perfect for us. 

Designer cycling style in Tokyo


You can wear designer clothes and go shopping for designer gear while looking effortlessly chic on a bike. Love this photo from Tokyo by by Jack Jurczy?skiego


Little Black Dress

The easiest dress up outfit for New Years Eve festivities must be the classic little black dress. Turn up to your cocktail party in heels on a bike you’ll definitely turn heads!

Vogue Espana and the BMX

We have no idea how the BMX rider is relevant to this fashion editorial – but Vogue is Vogue. Love the Miu Miu, Balenciaga, Givenchy and Marc Jacobs outfits.



A girl, A style

We love A girl, A style, a dreamy blog written by an Australian girl living in London and Cambridge filled with all things bright and beautiful. 

We especially love the fact that she rides a Pashley around town, sometimes filled with pink blooms to match her pink accessorised outfit.



We the People

Australia street-style fashion blog We The People snapped this lovely lass on a polkadot Gorman bike.



Did your ride to work feel (or look) like this today?
