Chamber-pop artist AK just released her music video for the song “Circles” directed by David Formentin and shot by Ray Levé in the Ditmas Park, Brooklyn, NY. AK sings about aimless post-college summer days spent with a close knit group of friends riding bikes, swimming in lakes, and hiding out on porches during thunderstorms. Anthemic vocal harmonies and upbeat rhythms mimic the sound of bicycle wheels turning as we ride through a long hot summer day. We love the talented’s AK video and just had to share with y’all.
One of our favorite bike style blogger Melissa Davies of Bike Pretty just launched a bike bag line on Etsy this month. This handmade handlebar bag also doubles as a cross body purse and can holds a U-lock and 3 cans of PBR. What more can a girl ask for? (more…)
We’re all about paring down to just the necessities when it comes to traveling by bike, and what’s more essential than a good bottle of wine? Don’t worry about transporting bulky bottles by bike, just use a bicycle wine rack by Oopsmark. Bikes and wine… a perfect taste pairing.
We’re totally smitten with Mercy & Ruth‘s bike handlebar bags. They’re stylish enough to serve as a civilian shoulder or crossbody bag or clutch, and they clip onto your handlebars in a snap. There’s room for everything you need when you hit the streets.
Make yourself heard! A cute bike bell isn’t just a charming addition to your ride, in many states it’s legally mandated. Keep yourself both safe and stylish by attaching a bell to your handlebars – as you can see, it’s a breeze.
Expecting rain? No sweat. With a SüLi Bike Seat Cap your saddle will stay dry in even the gloomiest of weather. Take a look at our pretty palette of seat caps… each cuter than the last and definitely more stylish than a plastic bag.
Last month, Culture Japan director Danny Choo ran a piece on his website about underground bicycle parking in Japan. We were so overwhelmed by the ingenuity, design, and forward thinking that led to such a system that we just had to spread the good word.
The video explains how the whole system works, but basically underground bike parking clears up valuable space on the streets and effectively eliminates concerns about bike vandals or thieves, therefore encouraging citizens to bike more. This means Japanese cyclists are saving money and practicing eco-friendly alternatives to motorized transportation. Beautiful.
We wanted to show you just how easy it is to go from bike to brunch and back again with a bicycle handlebar clutch from Mercy & Ruth. The bike bag can be used as a shoulder or crossbody bag and transforming it into a stylish bike bag is a breeze, as our very own intern Kat shows us.
