Apparently Florence likes to ride her bicycle around London to get the creative juices flowing. “”It’s good for me, especially when I’m away on the road. I’m always on planes, in cars, in vans so it’s so nice having that. It also sets free your imagination.” Read more here.

There are all different ways to style your bike – from French chic to Californian cool to Melbourne hipster.
The only way to describe this photo by Velo Vogue photographer Kristin Tieche is ‘bad ass’. The bike, the hair, the incredible shoes!

If you’ve ever felt a little unsafe walking home by yourself late at night, we’ve discovered a great scheme in New York City that could easily be replicated anywhere in the world.
Jay Ruiz and his team of volunteers escorts late-night travellers home from the subway safely with the Brooklyn Bike Patrol. It’s a free borough-wide service with 13 volunteers on call seven days a week – they receive a call, jump on their bikes to meet the caller at a subway station, walk the person safely home and wait for the next call.
What a heartwarming good news bike story.

PARK(ing) Day is an annual worldwide event where artists, designers and citizens transform metered car parking spots into temporary public parks. PARK(ing) Day aims to bring attention to the need for urban open space, to generate debate around how public space is created and allocated and to improve the quality of urban human habitat … until the meter runs out!
In 2011 there were 975 parks in 162 cities, across 35 countries and 6 continents. In recent years, participants have built free health clinics, planted temporary urban farms, produced ecology demonstrations, held political seminars, built art installations, opened free bike repair shops and even held a wedding ceremony!
This year’s PARK(ing) Day is on Friday 21 September and we’ve teamed up with Roll Up Valet Parking to present an awesome event in Melbourne. We want to show people that bikes are fun, cheap, convenient, ease congestion, bring businesses more customers and generally play with the concept of ‘parking’ and ‘parks’.
So with the support of City of Yarra and Awesome Foundation Melbourne, we’ll be offering bicycle valet parking in a single car space and we’ll build an adjoining temporary grassy park for everyone to enjoy, cyclist or not.
Stay tuned to the Roll Up locations page and our blog to find out more – and mark Friday 21 September in your diaries!

If it’s good enough for royalty, it’s good enough for us.
‘Our’ Princess Mary of Denmark and mother of four rides a Danish Nihola cargo bike riding across the palace square outside Amalienborg, where the royals live in Copenhagen. The Crown Prince of Denmark also uses the bike to take the children to school.
This is just too, too awesome.

Sydney Cycle Chic have recently had a style facelift, with much larger photos taken using Instagram. We love their new look and particularly this photo, showing a kind of burst of bike colour we enjoy seeing around our streets.

It’s pretty chilly today and we have soup on our mind.
SoupCycle is a soup subscription service based in Portland, Oregon. They’re unique because they deliver your hot, steaming soup selection (along with rustic bread or a mixed green salad) via bike. The soups are made from organic, locally sourced ingredients – we particularly like the sound of Barbecue Split Pea and Brazilian Black Bean.
So, who’s going to start SoupCycle Australia and bring us some soup?

We often like to take photos of cyclist riding against the backdrop of the Melbourne tram. Here’s a Portuguese variation of the same image – a stylish lady cyclist in Lisbon with a bright yellow tram in the background.
