Winter months are tough – icy mornings, windy evenings, and lots of darkness. In fact, this Monday we even had ‘blue Monday’ – reportedly the most depressing day of the year.
We’re sure London Cyclist readers won’t be feeling too down – after all, you know the joys of a bike ride – but we’ve got 5 super cool bikes to cheer you up, just in case January is getting you down…
The Bubble Wrap Bike
There are few things more satisfying than popping bubble wrap, and this creation by Eric Buss allows you to do it, en masse, whilst cycling, too…
The Mountain Bike Made for Two
Tandem Mountain Bikes are common enough that quite a few major brands manufacture them.
Riding in tandem is a great way to get out and enjoy cycling with a loved one – and with front suspension, disc brakes and Schwalbe High Gravity Tyres, you’ll both be set for excitement riding this Lapierre Tandem X2 Race Hardtail…
Just make sure the rider in front remembers the rear rider has no suspension, and might not be able to see that tree…
The Ice Bike
Icy outside? Fight Ice with Ice! This creation works well, provided you’re riding on ice, in freezing conditions. Useful.
This one is perfect for commuters who need a smart, simple solution to wheeling their folder around when not riding it. The Strida Bike is a triangular bike, that folds in a way that makes it easy to wheel, just like a shopping trolley.
The Strida is available in a range of colours – just to make sure you stand out…
The Bamboo bike
Not so crazy, actually – bamboo is a super strong material, and actually it can be made to look pretty beautiful with the right care and attention…
Those are five of our favourite. Have you seen any cool bikes out there?
