Update: top is more maroon than pictured, but it still works tonally with my hair.

Witch Legs

Keeping with the cycling mission, my last pair of Ground Effect bike knicks have lasted forever and are fabulous. It’s time to get another pair:

This year we’re cycling in Switzerland! Although my bike gear only comes out once a year, it gets a good thrashing and I haven’t bought any new stuff for five years or so.

After agonizing forever about what top to buy (nothing was goth enough!) The excellent price of this one won me over:

Gummi Bike

My adorable retro panniers have disintegrated (stupid trendy canvas), so I’m after something a bit more robust.

These aren’t as vintage adorable, but they are pretty goth and the price is right:

Continuing with the ‘*ah it burns* hiss whenever I am forced to endure sunlight’ theme, I needed a new black full rashie:

Still riding

I still ride my bike, but styling outfits around it is less of a priority now as I also get the bus to work half the time. Which is why I probably haven’t done a bike related post for a while.

It’s frequently dark on my ride home from work, and I’ve been in the market for some new lights for a while. These Knog Blinders are USB rechargeable, which is immensely appealing.

I have a new bike! I didn’t buy it online though. Her name is Minty and she looks something like this:

She needed some gorgeous retro styled panniers to match her cute look:

She already has my wicker basket on the front, and I think this setup will work nicely. I also bought her a new back flashie and a saddle to take when we do our cycle tour of Wales.

$49.00 x2 for the panniers

$9.95 for the flashie

When I have travel plans, I often get in the mood for travel wear. I’ve needed a good black vest for years, and now I’ve finally got around to ordering one.

I’m getting black, not nasty pink. I love the tailored cut Mountain Designs do; it stops you looking like a box with arms.

I’m going to have a trip to the Gold Coast and Byron Bay soon. On the very off chance that I may want to do some swimming, I’ve sourced a very plain, modest, practical swimsuit.
