Cycling in London isn’t always a breeze, and I eventually decided to buy myself a helmet, just in case. I wanted to have a helmet which I enjoyed wearing when braving the Euston Road or the Elephant and Castle roundabout, I decided to go for a more discreet BMX style helmet. After stumbling across a dull greyish green one at a flee market, I decided to paint it myself, to spruce it up a bit. This is the result. A year later, after a wide number of people have showed a keen interest in purchasing one, I have decided to try my luck at setting up a small business making hand-painted helmets and bells. Just for fun. This project will begin to take shape over the summer under the name of ‘La Bicyclette Coquette.’
Any tips, suggestions or ideas are welcome!

'Wheels of Change: How Women Rode the Bicycle to Freedom (with a few flat tires along the way' by Maria PopovaAs much as we love bike culture and everything bikes stand for, we may have underestimated the profound significance of the bicycle as a cultural agent of change. Thanks to a brilliant new book, we no longer do. National Geographic‘s Wheels of Change: How Women Rode the Bicycle to Freedom (With a Few Flat Tires Along the Way) tells the riveting story of how the two-wheel wonder pedaled forward the emancipation of women in late-nineteenth-century America and radically redefined the normative conventions of femininity.
