It’s Bike Week here in the UK and I’ve decided it’s officially OK for me to indulge in my bicycle obsession! I want to share my customised polka dot bike helmet with you today as well as a selection of pretty hand painted bike helmets.
I recently purchased a helmet in the sale in an independent bike shop here in Cambridge. £25 down from £50! But it was plain old white…..boring.
I decided to go for a gold polka dot bike helmet and promptly ordered some decals from this Etsy store. This DIY was as easy as sticking the decals on. I also added a visor to my helmet to shelter my eyes from the typical British rain.
It’s definitely cuter now! If you don’t fancy customising your bike helmet, you could get one of these fabulous ones instead. I wonder if it is OK for one to have a selection of helmets to choose from?! I am certainly getting that way with my satchels, oops!
Are you sick of me talking about bike things yet? No? One more thing – a year since the Bicycle Bracelets were launched, 250 have been made. I think they are officially the signature product now! They were even featured in this recent You Tube video by Karen Kavett which I was so chuffed about. Thank you to everyone who has purchased one!

I’m so looking forward to the warm weather ahead this weekend, I need some sunshine! Although I will be sporting big shades and drinking loads of water to avoid migraines. What do you guys have planned?!
I love my bike. So this week to celebrate Bike Week 2013, I shall be sharing bicycle related posts including round ups, handmade projects, events, competitions and even new products for my store. Cycling fans you are in for a treat!
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.
