On Yer Bike

Boris Johnson and various cycling committees urged people to cycle to work today and yesterday in an effort to reduce the transport chaos that was a result of the two day tube strike. That’s all very well and good, but I don’t have a bike in London. Granted I don’t have a job either, but I still have important places to go, like, you know, lunch dates and shops and stuff and so today my thoughts have turned to bicycles. I know the strike is over but wouldn’t it be nicer to explore the city by bike rather than join the London Lite-reading brigade underground, especially as summer hits. Again I am imagining the fake me on the bicycle, you know the tanned long-legged really-into-yoga one, rather than the actual small pale one who has been known to lock a bicycle up and then completely forget where she left it, only to stumble upon the vandalised frame a couple of weeks later.

The street style snappers are obviously in agreement as girls with bicycles have been featured on both The Sartorialist and Facehunter recently. LE
