Pip

Pip is a well known cyclist in Cardiff, and not just for her unicycle skills. A courier and bicycle polo aficionado, Pip is known to many in the cycling community. Pip’s managed to accessorise her  sporty look with a lovely pink scarf and purple basket ball shoes. Quite a mix! Cycle chic often worries about…

Laura

Laura’s dressed in smart work wear, including a traditional camel-coloured double breasted frock coat, a winter staple of women (and men) for many years. She’s on trend with this coat, something Harpers Bazaar oddly called ‘conservative glamour’ for the Autumn 2010 season. But is that ‘conservative’ with a big ‘C’ or little ‘c’ – we’re not sure?…

Makeover time

OK. Bit of a first. A Cycle Chic makeover! Take this guy. He’s riding a custom steel British Bob Jackson fixed wheel bicycle, riding around town and enjoying the sunshine. Nothing wrong with that. But the clothes…What would Cycle Chic suggest? Clearly this guy likes wearing proper bike shoes, so let’s give him a new…

Piers

Striking a pose that says ‘man about town’, Piers is dressed in muted greens but with a flash of bling – a wonderfully gold 1970s inspired sports bag. With long knitted scarf and hat worn at a slightly jaunty angle, Piers has the air of an old school dandy, which actually has a strong tradition…

Jessica

Jessica has the cutest hat in Cardiff. It’s official. Cycle chic was falling over themselves to catch Jessica’s lovely winter look. Dressed in warm knits, tiger hat, fir-lined parka and silver shoes (to add a little more sparkle), Jessica’s got a great outfit for an early winter’s bicycle ride to work. But it’s the hat…

Angela

Angela was late for an evening class the night that Cycle Chic met up with her. Speeding along, Angela tested Cycle Chic’s photography and bicycle handling skills to the limit – by not stopping. Riding along Woodville Road at rush hour whilst photographing backwards was a tricky one, but we got the shot! Angela works…

Tara

Wow! Tara was strikingly dressed in an amazing multi-layer of poncho-esque warmth when Cycle chic met up with her one cold and crisp evening a week or so ago. With Andean-style patterns and bright red scarf, Tara is outstandingly dressed and truely shows how individual you can be on a bicycle – no need for…

Andy

Andy was the first person that Cycle Chic had met that was already following the blog (there have been many more now). Andy works at the university and rides his luxurious town bicycle across the city each day. Usually dressed in a suit, Andy said it was a pity that we’d caught him in jeans….

Marlon

It was raining heavily the morning Cycle Chic met Marlon. Even so, Marlon was still smiling. Distinctive in her lovely long black scarf and leather jacket, fitted jeans with ‘bike-friendly’ ankle buttons and ‘Converse-esque’ boots, Marlon rides her dutch bike with crate at speed each day to the university where she works. After some speedy pedalling, Cycle…

Amelia

Cycle chic met Amelia as she was speeding on her way to work on her retro-cruiser bicycle. We’ve never see someone so wonderfully colourful, clothes and bicycle together. Amelia’s works as an illustration lecturer at Howard Gardens art school. Clearly colour is very important to her. From her yellow satchel, platted hair, purple gloves and…
