citizen cyclists making urban spaces liveable

20 June 2010

And we're off....

We could not have asked for a more beautiful day.   The day before the June Solstice (Winter anyone ??) and the sun shone down in Sydney for our inaugural Cycle Chic Sundays ride.
We ambled from Rose Bay to Bondi Beach, stopping at Miljo to try on some of their cute Swedish clogs and check out the Marimekko cups, had a quick latte and delicious brunch bruschetta at the Shop & Wine Bar on Curlewis Street and then on to the beach.

Not sure why the sight of girls in dresses and heels on bikes caused such amusement but the positive comments and smiles from locals and tourists alike was worth every cent !

Thanks to my ladies for sharing this first ride - we're already planning the next one - bigger, bolder, brighter and with more wheels and heels !!!

There will be more photos posted on flickr over the next few days.......
