spandex-free cycle chic


Are you familiar with the cycle-chic movement? It’s part of the whole wonderful spectrum that is urban cycling; looking good on your bicycle and having a good-looking bicycle under you. It can mean wearing anything from a T-shirt to a tweed suit. What it isn’t, is Spandex.

Cycle-chic started on the city streets of Europe and has eagerly spread to the cities of Australia and here in the USA. Blogs have been key in driving this stylish movement forward. They feature photo galleries that capture the spirit and the imagination of urban cyclists.

A great place to start the exploration is at the home of cycle chic, Copenhagen. http://www.copenhagencyclechic.com/

Then maybe venture over to London where my fellow Brits are showing fine form on those familiar streets. http://london-cycle-chic.blogspot.com/

Closer to home, in New York City you’ll find some very cool images from this chilly spring we are all enjoying. http://nycyclechic.blogspot.com/

It’s all about simply dressing practical with a touch of style and going about your busy day on your bicycle. What could be better? Why not dust off your old, beautiful bike and show your very own cycle chic.

here comes the sun

“Little darling, it’s been a long, cold, lonely winter.”
(“Here Comes The Sun,” -George Harrison)

Even spring’s first robin is frozen.

Selling T-shirts during one of the snowiest Midwest cold spells has been nothing if not challenging. BUT… we’ve kept our scarf-covered chins up, and fully anticipate getting our line of T-shirts into more and more stores as the weather warms.

Being our first winter in the T-shirt world, we did what we thought most seasonal businesspeople do: We worked inside. There were many cups of hot tea consumed as we designed new shirts, made new contacts, and pursued new ideas. We researched the T-shirt forums and read about the successes and failures of those brave souls who’ve ventured into this business before us.

And now it’s March – halfway to April, actually – and we’re looking forward to flooding the market with “odd guy art” T-shirts. We hope you’ll see something you like!

Cheers,
Marie

things that catch my eye… Arc touch mice

I cannot resist bringing this item to your notice. This sleek device is Microsoft’s new “Arc Touch Mouse.” With a press on the top of the arc it straightens out to easily fit in a pocket or case. Squeeze the ends and it pops back up into a comfortable arc. I love the look.
