So what is Bike Week? It’s the biggest nationwide cycling event in the UK, encouraging over half a million people to join in events, rethink their everyday journeys and switch to cycling as the most convenient way to get around.

I LOVE cycling to work. Cambridge is flat as a pancake so my 3-speed dutch bike is perfect. I feel privileged to live in such a beautiful city ready made for cyclists with stunning views and routes. Cycling here makes me feel free and happy.

This weekend I want you to enjoy some amazing Bike themed finds on the internet that made me smile.

This sound architecture piece in Amsterdam is made from 5,000 repurposed bicycle bells that ring gently in the wind. Stunning.

Architects from Holland have designed this velodrome cafe and bike rental building in China. You could work off a slice of cake on the roof?!!

This Bicycle art print by Brittany Slopey on Etsy will hopefully make a few people stop and think about the eco benefits of cycling. Is your city full of traffic?

Sometimes I like to fill my bike basket with flowers from the market. Not quite like this though! I can’t find the original source to this Pin, so do help me out if you know!

Do you cycle? You can check out more bicycle themed finds on my Pinterest board here.

Miss Chaela-boo is also blogging about Bike Week, so pop on over here to check out her post!

    I haven’t rode a bike in years and I really should change that. I wish Sudbury was flat though… there’s a few streets here I would be avoiding since this place is so hilly!
