As Grazia Prepares For Cycletta, We Bring You Our Top Five Bikes

18 April 2012

Heads up: Grazia is partnering with Cycletta, the UK’s most brilliant series of women-only bicycle rides, all set in stunning country venues. Last year's event was so super that we're doing it again. Ace British Olympic cyclist and all-round girl-crush of ours, Victoria Pendleton, is a supporter too! So in light of this, we’ve whipped you up to speed *chuckles* on the latest in cycling trends. Oh yes! A good pair of wheels is very important if you’re aiming to be a fashionable lady cyclist, but whether you choose a nifty racer, girly old-fashioned shopper, a practical hybrid or intimidatingly trendy fixed wheel number will depend on your cycling needs and your personal style. Here is our guide to the best of the bunch...

This handsome ladies bike has touches of the Dutch style about it-but the question on everyone’s lips must surely be what to put in the basket? A lovely pink bunch of daffodils? A cute, whiskery-faced mini dog? Or a simple pile of library books and a French stick? Decisions decisions . . . winstanleybikes.co.uk
