How To Choose a Bicycle.

Holidays are for hanging out at the beach, summer flings, catching a tan, drinking cocktails, eating too much and at the end of it all getting sick with the flu.

The holiday head cold is an inevitable part of a great holiday, but I had not expected to also get the no-bicycle ills as well.

The no-bicycle ills is the phenomenon of when you’re a serious bicycle babe and your butt, which usually gets a 15km workout everyday, no longer does so because you’re curled up with a head cold.

Light-Weight Electric Bicycle

Another awesome innovative electric bicycle from our friends who made the solar-electric cargo bicycle – NTS Works.

Never mind the sport’s workout this bicycle is for women who want to get around with freedom, ease and up steep hills!

The mini, but powerful, battery can be rebuilt and upgraded for half the cost of a new battery which makes this e-bike super affordable and way more eco-friendly than standard e-bikes.

Check it out!

Solar-Electric Cargo Bike!

NTS SunCycle – solar powered electric assist and shopping secured inside!

 

Let’s face it. Bicycle babes like, love to shop!  When you’re not paying for petrol, servicing and parking there is just a whole lot more cash in your wallet for everything else a girl could want.

But let’s also face it, when you go on a shopping spree by bicycle there is sometimes a small problem, space!

A standard bicycle basket can carry a surprising amount, but there are times when you need to carry larger items, pets, deliver goods or take a picnic to the beach that a cargo bicycle comes in handy.

Or if you’re someone who wants to save dollars and run your business by bicycle then cargo bicycles, especially electric assist, are the bicycles to get.

There are many cargo bicycles in the world,

The beautiful bicycle

Building beautiful bicycles for beautiful people is a Copenhagen specialty.  The most recent bicycle beauty is Velorbis.

Classic bicycle beauty. Built on the principle of classic design that lasts a lifetime, Velorbis is a bicycle built for living the bicycle lifestyle with freedom and ease, forever!

The bicycle is the baby of Kenneth Bodiker who was in New York during 9/11 and witnessed the phenomenon of people being “forced” to take to the bicycle when public transport and city streets were blocked.

He came to thinking about what kind of bicycle he would want to ride if there was no other option, and then he got to designing a simple by stylish bicycle that was comfortable and practical, as well as sleek and sassy.

A passion for cycling fashion.

A passion for cycling fashion.

His first bicycle, plain chrome with balloon tyres, was a hit and the rest is history.

The company now produces bicycles with the basic principle of a bicycle designed to be a timeless fashion piece.

Scientist Wants to Salt Clouds. Get A Bike!

This has been a week of everyone getting their bicycle nickers in a tangle.

Geoengineer, Kristy Kuo, wants to spend tax payer dollars to “increase the longevity of [salty rain] clouds” to try and make the clouds whiter to reflect the sun’s heat.

Like seriously girl, go get yourself a bicycle and some desirable ideas.  I’d rather ride my bike through a climate-change induced hurricane than a Kristy Kuo induced salt-rain storm.

I like my ground water unsalted, and an “insurance policy for the earth” doesn’t thrill me either.

That would make the Geoengineers the “insurance companies of the earth”, and we all know how much  how good insurance companies are at wiggling out of paying for damages.

Anyway, we could make a serious hole in emissions right now by putting every man, women, child and urban delivery service on a bicycle.

Sports bicycles are for sport not babes!

Holidays are for hanging out at the beach, summer flings, catching a tan, drinking cocktails, eating too much and at the end of it all getting sick with the flu.

The holiday head cold is an inevitable part of a great holiday, but I had not expected to also get the no-bicycle ills as well.

The no-bicycle ills is the phenomenon of when you’re a serious bicycle babe and your butt, which usually gets a 15km workout everyday, no longer does because you’re curled up with a head cold.

What occurs is a serious amount of soreness and leg twitching which can only be eased by some stretching, and even that is no match for the serious amount of blood flow that occurs on a bicycle.

So while getting sick is no fun, it’s made worse when your body goes in to protest at not getting it’s twice daily hit of blood cleanser,
