One cold and sunny day in the Bay a few weeks ago, Cycle Chic met Marilyn, Scott and Brandy the dog. Sporting a couple of folding Bromptons, the trio were out for a spin around the parks, cycle routes and scenic parts of Cardiff. Dressed in outdoor wear that wouldn’t go amiss on the slopes … Read more
Yesterday, the British Fashion Awards took place in London, and one of cycling favourite supporters and enthusiasts was the recipient of the ‘Outstanding Achievement Award’ 2011. Paul Smith won the coveted title, an award that he adds to his growing collection, which puts him squarely in the position as one of the UK’s most successful … Read more
Cycle chic caught up with Belle on one of those days when a cup of tea in front of a fire would be a welcome alternative to riding in heavy rain, road awash with big puddles and coloured by the glazed reflection of streetlights. In the other two photographs taken of Belle, you can actually … Read more
Vogue is currently running a festive winter feature on skate chic. Here at Cycle Chic we thought that this winter’s skating trend was great for cycling too. This season is about natural and subdued colours but with a strong emphasis on geometric patters, some traditional, some less so. Expect to see more Scandinavian styling over … Read more

Lovely mediative short film by director Martin de Thurah. Cycle Chic loves the beauty captured in this film. We hope you enjoy it too. Best played full screen.

With wonderful double breasted long coat, deep plum coloured shoes and beautifully embroidered fingerless gloves, Catrin surely deserves a Cycle Chic five stars. Simply wonderful.
Cycle Chic spotted Jamie largely due to his bicycle handling skills. Like many track bike (fixed wheel) riders, he spends a lot of time balancing a red traffic lights – unsurprisingly called a ‘track stand’.

Sporting a tailored tweed jacket, country cheque shirt and woven tie, Edward wouldn’t look out of place in the more sartorial 1930′s and 40′s. With stout leather boots and an ex-post office, rod-braked bicycle, Edward … Read more
