Nice Bikes In Sydney This Week

Everywhere I turn this week I see bicycles - am I just tuned in more or is Sydney going bicycle mad ??

Gorgeous Electra on Bourke St

Spotted this beautiful Electra on Bourke St today - nicely pimped up and that skirt guard is cute as hell.  Hoping the owner gets in touch, we need you and your beautiful bike on a Cycle Chic ride !

And I see this Electra often down at the ferry.  Classic.

I suspect it depends upon where you live. On the beach road bike path here in Melbourne, I see almost nothing except mountain bikes being ridden by the lycra and funny shorts crowd. Head across town to Carlton, South Yarra etc and I see a heap of beautiful uprights being ridden by young hipster types. As with most trends, I reckon they are the ones who will drive this new (old) revolution.~regards,Ian

I feel like i've become more and more attuned to bikes since getting my own. I see bikes everywhere, and i can virtually pick up the 'click' of wheels spinning from a block away.

My own bike is an electra, i love seeing others around. pics up at featherbrigade.blogspot... and we're definitely getting our gang together for your next cycle chic ride.

Ian, shame you're in Melbourne, you sound like you could use a cycle chic ride.
