Last week I was invited to go to the unveiling of a special bicycle celebrating the 70th birthday of Eddy Merckx
. The event took place at Trade Mart where you can also visit a beautiful expo about Eddy Merckx/Jacky Ickx
. I'll write about that expo in an upcoming article.
Another year has past and it’s traditional to set goals in January. Many good resolutions to make this year better than the previous one. I’m not that kind of girl though as I don’t need any goals to ride my bicycle. I just do! Oh… and I just designed a bicycle too. Find out more after the jump.
The bicycle is doing very well in 2014 with many new ones finding their way to the market. Finding the right one for you can be hard though. For me personally that would be one that doesn’t stop you from going off the beaten path and with a distinguished design/look. The bicycle that we are going to see after the jump would qualify that description and is coming in the Spring of 2015.
It doesn't happen often that a new bike design grabs my attention. This one however done by Nike's former design director Eric Duvauchelle
has managed to do that. It took 18 months of design, engineering and passion to bring it to life. The bicycle's name is CYLO
and the frame was designed in partnership with ARRO.STUDIO
from Paris, France.
A closer look at two bikes that captured my attention. Both are produced by Dutch brand Koga
that develops and assembles bikes at their headquarters in Heerenveen. My Winter bike is a Koga
and I'm very happy with its quality and would gladly recommend their bikes.
Some of you will know that I love to ride my bicycle. I try to share the beautiful scenery that I encounter along the way via my Instagram feed
. I'm hopeful that my enthusiasm is creating an itch so that others would do the same. Find out why after the jump.
You are probably thinking what has Copenhagen in common with a wheel. Well for starters it isn't something from Denmark but from the United States. The wheel got its name because Copenhagen is famous for all its cyclists and being so bicycle friendly. Discover what the Copenhagen Wheel is exactly after the jump.
Good things come in small doses. You had to wait a bit but here is another special edition of some of my favorite discoveries of the past months. Hope you'll enjoy what you are about to see after the jump.
Vintage looking bikes, you see them everywhere, and they are becoming a rather popular sub category. Like with anything else, it's an art to create them just right without overdoing it. There is one Belgian company that masters the art of handmade bicycles like no other and they are called Achielle
I love to combine two favorite things I'm passioned about. That's exactly what the book that I'm going to talk about does. The book talks about history of food in the cycling peloton. Good food is something that I can immensely enjoy. Just like cycling it is part of our "Belgian" gene pool.
