Today my week of guest blogging at The Design Files lands us in the city of my heart, London.

Regular readers of the blog will know that I am a huge fan of cycling in London and it’s the place where I really found my feet (or wheels) as a commuter cyclist. I have many, many fond memories of taking my bike to visit grandiose buildings, tootling along the Thames and exploring the hidden nooks of the city.

To get you in the mood for some London cycle chic, here’s the video of The Bike Song by Mark Ronson which was used in the Transport for London cycle stories which I blogged about recently.

The music video features set-through bikes, bright vintage outfits, cute girls and the streets of London. Watch it and I dare you not to break out into a smile!

In London I chat with Guy Hills of Dashing Tweeds, one dapper gentleman who supplies us with the popular Disco-bright reflective legwarmers.
