Our red and cream dream ladies bicycle, Velorbis Dannebrog, has been featured in the Jan/Feb 2010 issue of Det Nye (The New) magazine, the biggest and most popular fashion and lifestyle magazine in Norway.
Dannebrog is in good company, listed in the Top 10 must-have fashion trend items for 2010, highlighting that bicycles are the perfect fashion accessory to complete a look, alongside the usual luxurious essentials such as bags, shoes, jewellery, etc. The added bonus of a bicycle such as Dannebrog is that it’s an exquisite multi-purpose accessory, not just bling and is timeless, lasting way longer than one season.
Pedal Paradise by Robin Barton talks about “Jan Gehl, the 74 year-old godfather of bike friendly urban design was at the forefront of Copenhagen’s transformation. Now consulted by cities from Melbourne, Perth and Sydney to New York and London on how they can be more like Copenhagen.”
The Australian Cyclist article also talks about how cycling can give a sense of community: “I think people are aware it gives them quality of life. They can move about the city in a different way. They can be part of city life. They can dress themselves in the city.” A lovely way of thinking and a concept that Velorbis endorses.
