The Holstee Manifesto: Lifecycle Video

by Alacoque

Dear Tillie,

it’s only 25 days until I’m due to give birth to the wriggling baby in this huge belly of mine. As a result I’ve been spending a lot of time with my feet up in front of the fan rather than out and about on my bike. That’s not to say I haven’t been thinking about riding, in fact many people have been asking me if I’m going to take the baby on the bike (of course!) and I’ve been perusing online bike stores, blogs and videos to get my cycling fix. That’s how I came across this little video. I like the idea- life is simple. That’s what makes cycling so beautiful, you push the pedals and away you go. It’s the simple pleasures in life that really are the best and if we slow down and really appreciate the little things we can be so much happier than when we fill our lives with unnecessary junk. Anyway enough from me. I should just let the video speak for itself!

Copenhagen: city of cycling

by Alacoque

Dear Tillie,

I seem to be spending a lot of time on the net this week! Just came across another video which is an oldie but a goodie.

It’s always nice to be reminded of the type of cycling culture that can be achieved with some thoughtful city planning and a few years of cycling promotion. I especially love all the couples holding hands and kissing. And the kids in their Halloween costumes. And the kid reading. Yeah, I like it a lot.

Commuter Jeans

by tillieandcoco

Dear Tillie,

I’m not sure how I feel about these jeans. I’m a real believer in riding in normal clothes rather than “cycling gear”, but these seem to have some good features.

They probably don’t come in a maternity version anyway.

Back on the Bike

by tillieandcoco

Dear Tillie,

did you miss me? I’ve been MIA for a while now, I know. Sorry! Well the secret is out- I’m pregnant!

The past few months have been spent sleeping, eating, and vomiting. Add to that a flat rear tyre and there was not much cycling going on! Now that I’m in my forth month the morning sickness has passed and I finally had enough energy to walk my bike over a couple of suburbs to get the rear tyre fixed I’m back on the bike! Yay!

In celebration of my return to the bicycle I bring you this amazing YouTube video (also available on iTunes!):

Le Velo!
