Bikes from the future

locustHow would you like to cycle across a lake? Or cycle at 60km/hour with the power of the wind? What about taking a more leisurely approach to cycling and lying down while you cycle? All of these are possibilities in the following five bicycle designs that we could one day see next to the Trek section in the bike shop.

If you want to find out more check out the guest post I wrote over on Bicycle Design called 5 bikes from the future. I have been taking more opportunities lately to write guest posts as it is great for connecting with new people. Of course I will make sure you never miss out on these by adding links right here on London Cyclist.

At the moment I’m just preparing everything for a big cycle I am going to do from Birmingham to London (160 miles ish) tomorrow. I am quite looking forward to exploring all the canals and am keeping my fingers crossed for not too many flat tyres.

In other news I heard that bike shops are not catering to experienced female cyclists. This news seemed interesting to me and if there are any female readers out there that would care to comment I would like to hear your thoughts. There was also reports of increased bicycle thefts in London in the past 4 months. Hence the well timed post on how to lock your bike which I recommend everyone takes a look at to refresh their memory of good bike locking practise.

If you are wondering what else is coming to London Cyclist soon then stay tuned because I have a list of 50 post ideas that I want to write and the list just keeps getting bigger. I would definitely like to review more bicycle products so that you are only buying the good stuff and not wasting your money on the bad stuff. I am also hoping to write a post on all the sites you can use to discover new cycling routes which some people have requested. As always I love to hear from you so drop me a message on twitter or in the comments.

For now I’ll leave you with this video about cycling in Amsterdam. I hope one day London is like this.
