Lizzie

Cycle Chic thinks a little of Lizzie’s personality comes out in the photograph. When Cycle Chic met up with her, she was really pleased to think that we had thought her cool enough to photograph on her bicycle. And she certainly is. With a mix of leather ‘biker’ jacket, purples and pinks she’s got a…

Lee

Although laden with bags, Lee’s still smiling on her slightly rusty bright yellow BMX as she speeds to her work. Lee was particularly proud to show off her red Banksy hoodie with Panda.

Tim

Cycle chic met up with Tim one wet evening when the wind was very cold. What struck us about Tim was his bright red Canadian gloves – like a piece of ice hockey wear these gloves were absolutely perfect for the cold cold wind…Brrr…

Kim

Kim’s dressed in a casual combination of creamy cardigan and skinny trousers, french strip T and a great maroon coloured beanie. Riding her bicycle with cavernous wicker basket attached, she’s totally ready for time shopping in town…

Bill Cunningham New York: Welsh Premier: Details Announced!

For decades, this bicycle riding street photographer has been obsessively and inventively chronicling fashion trends and high society charity soirées for the New York Times’ Style section in his columns “On the Street” and “Evening Hours.” Documenting uptown fixtures (Anna Wintour, Tom Wolfe, Brooke Astor, David Rockefeller—who all appear in the film out of their…

Pol

Pol runs Cardiff Cycle Tours, based in Cardiff Bay. He has a fleet of cool bikes and is planning a St. Davids Day group ride as part of the tenth National St David’s Day Parade in Cardiff, to be held on Thursday March 1st. This event has grown from a few hundred at the first…

Julian and Olga

This is a great picture that really shows the vitality of cycling. Spotted one Saturday, Olga and Julian were surprised to be caught on camera, but enjoyed the whole idea of Cycle Chic. And look at Olga’s handlebar flowers, and matching gloves too! Wonderful and almost celebratory…

Laura

Laura’s reaction to meeting Cycle Chic was “This isn’t chic, why don’t you come back in the summer when I’m wearing a dress!”. Laura’s right, and it’s difficult to expect cyclists not to don full waterproofs under Cardiff’s heavy skies. But even wet weather gear can show a little personality. Take Laura’s combination of jacket…

Grace

Grace rides her fantastic Raleigh Chopper to work each day, a great statement of her individuality. Cycle Chic (obviously due to the shop in the background) met up with her before Christmas as she sped to work. No time to stop, Cycle Chic managed to get this image on the fly…Phew!

Allie

Allie has a unique style complemented by her bright pink cruiser bicycle. With a real decorative touch, Allie has adorned both bicycle and herself in bright accessories and, in particular, flowers. And look at those mittens, with added bobbles. Magic! Allie is also, we believe, part of the Tiger Bay Brawlers, Cardiff’s amazing roller derby…

Rosalind

Rosalind is a wonderful supporter of cycle chic’s Harris inspired tweed rides. And it was on another sunny day when cycle chic met up with her as she was rushing to her office Christmas party. With no time to stop really, this image belies Rosalind’s stress at being late. But no matter, this is a…

Clare

Clare has already featured on Cardiff Cycle Chic after taking part in last October’s Harris Hack. Now dressed about 50 years more modern than the last time we met her, Clare’s wearing a lovely warm parka and bobble hat that’s perfect for surviving the chilly streets of Cardiff. But the biggest splash of colour comes…
