Roll with it...

Had a blast at the Frock N Roll bike ride this morning.  What a lovely group to ride with and a very mellow route that ended at the Sydney Rides Festival at Sydney Park.  Thank you to Victoria from the  Bicycle Garden for organising this!

Frocks are for everyone!

Loving Philippa's DIY crafty basket!

What an attractive crowd!

Looking lovely ladies!

Love the leafy ride under the trees of Surry Hills.

Ollie being a true bicycle garden star, carrying flowers that were sweetly given to all as a welcome.

S-boy made new friends.

 Then not long after the Cargo Bike ride joined us at the Sydney Rides Festival..

The deck chairs were a fabulous idea!

Loved the bike n blend too!

So our contribution to the festival this year?  Well we always like to make it different so this year it was a yarn bomb.  This perfectly mixes my two loves craft and bikes.  To make it even more fun, the granny squares I used were my 25 squares recieved from the Dellicious Granny Square Swap!  What am I going on about?

Well you make 25 squares (we did 6" ones).  These are mine.

Then you get 25 squares back from 25 different people.  

These are then yours to make whatever you like out of...

So I made a little something extra...

And so using the squares I spelled out the word "Roll!"

I thought it would be nice for the ladies involved in the swap to have their work noted in some way.

I hope they like it too!


Back in the Day!

I love old childhood pics of people on bikes.  The two below are S-boy and his brothers riding.  So cute.  All four of them still ride when they can.  It can be a fun and frustrating experience to teach children to ride bikes but it really is just one of those life skills that just keeps on giving.  Like learning to swim.


This picture below is S-boys dad riding in Turkey (possibly Sinop).  He would probably be around 20 yrs old here (last guy on the right).  I love that there is a gang all dressed lovely ready for a ride.

So it might be time to revisit your old bike snaps... It will make you warm and fuzzy for bikes all the more!
