Australia Cycle Chic
Cycle Chic exists all over the place, not least in Australia. Here's a combination of guest photos we've had seen in and other Australia Cycle chic photos. From Sydney, Melbourne, Gold Coast and Brisbane.
I've lived in Australia on two occasions and now, deep in a Copenhagnen December, I often remember the Australian summer. Playing cricket on the beach on Christmas Day, strapping my surfboard to the roof of my trashed Ford Falcon station car and bumping down rutted dirt roads to hidden beaches with splendid breaks and, not least, riding my bike to work from St. Kilda into downtown Melbourne. Long before Cycle Chic was born as a concept.
The two photos on the right side above are from Lucy, who sells wonderful vintage bikes on Australian eBay under the screen name SydneyVintageBikes. Get bidding!
There is a photo from PS Bikes in Melbourne, who sell Christiania cargo bikes and Velorbis and a couple of photos from a website called The Vine, who have a series of what they call Velo Chic. Then there's a photo from the lovely cycle nymph, Bicycle Pirate.
By all accounts, Cycle Chic is alive and well down under and that pleases us here, up yonder, in Copenhagen.
