Easy breezy beautiful bicycle girl is the charming smile Dutch actress Famke Janssen is accessorizing on her bicycle. But not only does this former Bond babe seem to be having the time of her life on two wheels, she’s even brought her adorable four legged friend, Liquorice, along for the ride. Famke was sure to make sure her passenger was cozied up in pet bicycle basket where he can enjoy the ride, and we can’t blame Liquorice for the big smile he’s sporting.

Happy Day of the Dead! Although many might think this Mexican holiday is a lot like American Halloween, it’s a large celebration with an abundance of festivities, great food, costumes, and customs that celebrate death. Some of the most common customs of celebrating El Dia de Los Muertos is the making of elaborate altars to welcome departed spirits home. Vigils are held, and families often go to cemeteries to fix up the graves of their departed relatives. Festivities also frequently include traditional foods such as pan de muerto (bread of the dead), which can conceal a miniature skeleton. To celebrate the festivities, we went around and found some our favorite images through the web of our favorite celebrations on bicycle. We hope you enjoy the festivities!

Q. What is Wander Cyclist?
A. It’s interesting that no one has really ever asked me this question. The name “Wander Cyclist” didn’t come about until later in my tour when I realized that is exactly what I had been doing for the last 10,000 miles or so. I usually never planned my destination until a
week, or sometimes a day, before. There was a general direction but since I speak Mandarin, and a little Russian, I would speak to a lot of locals to discuss places and routes. The “Wander Cyclist” is definitely an alter ego, as she only represents certain and particular
facts of my entire self. She’s the one who takes unnecessary risks and her main goal is to survive from one day to the next. She’s a bit more macho and rough around the edges than the other parts of me…and definitely more stinky.
Q. Where is your favorite destination for a bicycle ride?
A, I’ve cycled over 20,000 miles in China alone, so I would probably say China. In all reality, it’s not so much a physical place as the emotional and mental state I find myself in particular areas. There have been a few places that were pivotal points during my 25,000 tour, it wasn’t so much the place as what I explored and learned about myself, within. These particular places were in Tibet and the Assey Plateau in Kazakhstan.
Q. Does your bike have a story?
A. She was pieced together, as in every component, selected by me. The frame is a Soma Saga and was graciously sponsored to me by Soma Fabrications. Her name in Nellie Bly and she’s been the most loyal partner of my entire life. She’s got some stories for you.
Q. What is your favorite restaurant?
A.. Mom’s house. It’s great. After being on the road for 3 years it’s great to come home, recover, and not have to think about what to buy or cook. She’s taken really good care of me during this difficult time, post tour depression.
Q. Early bird or night owl?
A. Night owl, of course.
Q. Who is someone you admire?
A. I don’t have anyone in particular but I admire anyone, especially a woman, that breaks boundaries. Someone that pushes them self to the limits, personal boundaries. People have no idea what they are capable of until they are put into some serious dangerous situations. People who can walk out of a challenge and look back and realize it was a building block of life, rather than whine about hardships and difficulties.

Funny and talented Kat Dennings spotted sporting a proper fall cycling outfit. She clearly knows how to style herself bicycle chic for autumn and we are loving it all from blazers, high wasted wool skirts, tights, boots, and long flowing tresses. Just the right amount of clothing to keep warm during fall rides while looking tres cute and cozy on bike. Image Courtesy of Show Me A Bike
Many of us love listening to music during our commutes and during a leisurely ride. Managing a radio on bicycle a few decades ago could have been a lot more difficult without the type of technology we have today to make a bicyle stereo manageable but gee where those vintage stereos something to say about design and quality. We still love that retro look and although vintage bicycle stereos look bulky, we can help but share some of our favorite finds of vintage and retro bicycle radios. Image Courtesy Of Bike De (more…)
