We spotted this good article – “Going Dutch” by Cycle and Style, the online women’s magazine bringing together cycling, style and health.

The article talks about how Dutch-style bicycles from Europe, such as Velorbis, are making an impact across the ‘pond’ and are fast becoming a high trend must-have item with a core following by style savvy, health conscious consumers. 

“The bicycles put their riders in the kind sitting-up-straight position that your mother taught you was best. It is an elegant position—a way to survey the streetscape around you in comfort. A girl can easily wear high heels, a dress and a past-the-knees coat as she pedals off to work, to school or to the café down the street for lunch with friends.”

The article also talks about the number of classic bike stockists which are rising up throughout the US and Canada, in particular Copenhagen Cyclery, the European upright bike specialist and Velorbis dealer in Chicago.

This increase in availability means that it’s now even easier in North America to enjoy a Velorbis “’Copenhagen Chic’ look that will have you commuting in style”, such as with the Velorbis Victoria Classic or Dannebrog retro ladies bikes that are included in the article.

Velorbis recently took part at the Cycle Chic Fashion Show at Cork City Hall, Ireland; the event where cycling, fashion and design were entwined as one concept.

The Cycle Chic Fashion Show, held annually during Design Week in Ireland, effectively showcased cycling culture and highlighted just how practical, green and affordable cycling is as a green transportation option. It reflected the spirit and street style from the cycling capitals of the world such as Copenhagen where cycling is an integrated part of everyday life and an essential accessory for contemporary, healthy living.  

On display was a selection of Velorbis bicycle treats: our fire-engine red Dannebrog classic ladies bikefunky Scrap Deluxe ladies bicycle and oururban retro Churchill Balloon gents bike with brown Fat Frank tyres. 

The influence and popularity of chilled-out cycle culture, carbon conscious travel and urban commuting is growing amongst the environmentally aware, fashion-forward people of Ireland. Velorbis is catering for this demand by linking up with Thinkbike, the new Velorbis dealer in Dublin, Ireland.  

Thanks to the Cycle Chic Fashion Show for a great event. Welcome on board Thinkbike!
