Guest Photos: Cycle Chictastic

A splendid splash of red on this fashionable photo from our good friends over at Velorution in London. And that cape is just wonderful. It's a swinging cycling cape christened "Yellow Raver" because of its reflective qualities - fine wool worsted with light reflective yarn patented as LumaTwill. It's the creation of Guy Hills of Dashing Tweeds.

You can see the cape at Velorution's shop in Great Titchfield Street in London. It retails at £485 and, Velorution's blog tells us, Guy Hills can design a bespoke cape for men, too. Smashing idea.

On the other side of the planet, our mate Radzi of the groovy Australian blog Fahrradsozialismus has some wicked cool cyclofashion photos on his Flickr photostream.

Do be sure to check out the photos on Flickr by clicking on them and reading his informative texts about the images.

Oooh I love the idea of a reflective tweed jacket for cyclists. Not sure the cape is quite me, but there's so much that can be done with the idea...

I'm on Velorution's mailing list but I didn't know about that cape. Will have to check that out next time i am in that neck of the woods!
