In London this summer, they started the Transport for London Cycle hire. Based on popular schemes like the French Velib, you sign up online to become a member, choose any cycle from one of the city's numerous bicycle docks, and off you go.
My brother and husband are both keen cyclers and have been for a while. They're always trying to convince me I should get a bike too.
I recently told my brother that "my style of dress doesn't lend itself well to getting on bike". He sent me a few links and I stand corrected.
These are some seriously hot women, dressed in all their stylish finery, on their bicycles on the streets of Copenhagen. Maybe its all the cycling that makes them look like some uber-species of hot women.
We had the pleasure of going to Copenhagen last year and my main observations were its a very small, extremely organised city, I had the best vegetarian meal I've ever had and I'm not even vegetarian, Christiana was mind boggling, the people are tall, wholesome and healthy looking, friendly and their English is perfect, and I got the sexiest tights I've ever seen.
Now, back to the biker babes.
She brings a whole new definition to the word SuperMum. There she is with her little bubba in her cargo bike. Genius idea, you have the full cargo bike as pictured, you can detach the front and use it as a stroller and then you also have the basic bike. And I bet kids love them too!
I am so joining this army.
I just need to find the baddest badass bike I can get my hands on! I'll keep you posted!
But till then.......
