Happy Velo Day!!

Happy Velo Day to all the bike riders, bike mechanics, bike planners, and bike community out there!


Now usually at this time of year we would be waking up early tomorrow and heading to the Bourke St cycleway to spread the bike love message, but sadly this year we are busy busy.  Life has got in the way.  Soo we got in early and put a little cheer up already for all you lovely bicyclists tomorrow!

Now to see if you can find our little messages…

(Cross fingers - that most messages remain intact until this time)     XXXX

And if you aren't riding along Bourke tomorrow - never fear.. We took pics and will blog happily about them soon!


Making a new bike beautiful!

The next best thing to riding your bike is decorating it... It took a while to decide on colours but I love the end result! 

I made two skirtguards attached with a combination of cable ties and micro-binder clips.. The pattern can be found at Ravelry and is pretty easy to follow! 

Then I attached a foxy bag I bought off eBay by cable-tying through the strap hoops and around the handlebars! DIY handlebar bag success! Perfect for my tissues and portable stereo! 

Then my Witch went in her pride of place as bike mascot.. This is her third bike so far and she has braved all weather conditions quite well! 

I added cherry spoke decorations that J-bot (the kindly Lass) found for me on her trip to Japan.

And then as crocheted heart on the back basket, feathers (gang insignia) and red fairylights (battery-powered).  

Looking beautiful! 

Now back to riding to more adventures!!
