Vintage Bikes

As Spring is now here (although freezing today), I am looking forward to more weekend bike rides. Here are some vintage bike images that inspire me to do more stylish cycling!

I am totally in love with the outfits in the first picture, love the turbans! And I love the wedges in the last picture, I always cycle wearing completely inappropriate footwear.

I will have to post a picture of me and my bike (a 70s navy dutch bike) at some point.
(Not sure where most of these images came from, so apologies if they're yours.)


  1. I haven't rode a bike in such a long time =(
    Lovely pictures.

  3. oops, sorry about that. These girls remind us how one should look while riding one's bicycle!!!!

  4. Fabulous pictures. I am guessing that the turbans kept their pin curled hair in place-I am not sure I am brave enough to wear one of those whilst cycling to uni!!

  5. Lovely pictures! My hand are now itching for taking the bike out for a ride... =) I'm actually a bicycle-around-the-year gal, as long as it's above -15 celsuis I find my bike to be the best way to get around. Here it's faster than the bus or walking, and better for my economy and for the enviroment than having a car.
    However, I wish I looked as glamorous as these girls while riding my bike! =)

  6. There is a blog award for you at my blog :)

  7. I wish i looked that good riding a bike!
