Celebrity Cycle Chic


It's been a while since we have featured some celebrity chic. Here we have the Canadian actress Ellen Page looking absolutely smashing in true Copenhagen Cycle Chic fashion.


And Cycle Chic's international audience may not be acquainted with the Norwegian author Per Asbjørn Risnes Jr. but I am since he is a mate of mine. This photo of him and his daughter was a publicity shot for one of his books, 'Verdens beste pappa' or The World's Best Dad. He writes for the Norwegian version of Financial Times, Dagens Næringsliv. Besides all that, it's just a cool photo.

Addendum: A comment spurred me to include info about the bike seat, above. They're widespread in Denmark and Holland and in Denmark we call them bulldogs. When the kids are younger you can strap their feet in. When they get older there's a bar you slap onto your frame so their feet can rest on them.

The seat on which they sit is detachable so you don't have to ride with it when the kids are not on the bike with you.

are the little girls feet buckled into the bike? I have never seen a little seat like that for a child on the front of a bike. How freaking adorable!
