Frocks on Bikes is the gathering point for stylish lady cyclists in New Zealand – they organise rides, events and shows for ‘sustainably-minded, funky women to celebrate biking beauty’.
At the Northside Ladies Bicycle Calendar 2011 calendar launch I was handed a flyer telling me that the sassy and stylish NZ cycling phenomenon is coming to Melbourne, with the inaugural picnic ride in January 2011.
Here are some photos featuring the organising committee behind Frocks on Bikes Melbourne – frilly handbags, a retro-styled floral dress from Dangerfield and a cute Red Riding Hood rain jacket.

We think the Artikcar by Ben Wilson is simply adorable.
And if you’re in Melbourne, check out what’s happening at the Melbourne Bikefest. Today’s theme is is all about bikes and design, including the forum today entitled Tomorrow’s Bikes: New Directions, presented by Design Victoria.
We have a bit of a thing of Korean film stars. In fact, we once sat through a very long and boring mockumentary called The Actresses just because it featured five beautiful Korean actresses.
So we love the look book for Korean label Mind bridge, featuring Korean actors Gong Yoo and Lee Min Jung. Yes to preppy slim-cut blazers and cropped chinos!
Even better, tere’s the stylish, smiling and sunny behind-the-scenes video of the photoshoot.
There was no way we were going to miss the opening party of Melbourne Bikefest, Melbourne’s celebration all things bike-related for the next 4 days based at 1000 £ Bend (note that CycleStyle is also a sponsor of Bikefest, but even if this wasn’t the case this is so our thing).
Bike valet parking – a great idea thanks to Crumpler for when you have that many bikes all congregating in one place. Look how many more bikes you can fit in the same space in a carpark. Take note, city councils!
Crazy bike riding antics in the carpark!
The Bike Shop also have stocks of Outlier pants, I love cycling T-shirts, Pageant Queen reflective sashes, our most popular wicker baskets and a selection Kitsch Kitchen panniers – if you can’t see them on display ask the friendly store staff for them.
This is your chance to see, touch, try stuff on and save on shipping for those purchases you’ve been coveting from our store :–)
Cute Bikefest badges – love the presentation too, using an old wheel. Might even borrow that idea for ourselves…
There is so much more stuff happening in the next 4 days that we can’t list or describe them all here – so why not go check out the program for yourself. To read an interview with Pip Carroll, the director of Melbourne Bikefest, click here.

While Helsinki is experiencing mere hours of sunlight and masses of snow at the moment, we here in the Southern Hemisphere can take inspiration from this stylish cyclist in the Helsinki summer.
These guys deserve big kudos for their professionalism and positive can-do attitudes. Shooting on location can be pretty tough – being out of a studio environment means that you can’t control things like wind, glare, cold and sand. Goodness knows how Marianne manages to look glamorous in all conditions!
