After watching this I'm hating my portable speaker for being the size of my fist instead of the size of my fridge.

I'd like to see this boombike nail Ditchling Beacon.

From Hong Kong

I was just in Hong Kong. 
I went on planes.
I took the metro with my Octopus card.
I took trams that went almost vertically into the sky.
I took ferries with reversible backed benches.
I took a cable car into the clouds (fog).
I walked in Jackie Chan's steps and the gold glittery floor of the Hong Kong Exhibition & Conference Centre.
I took Christmas coloured busses and I even rode the world's longest escalator.

But no bikes.

So I did what I always do when I miss my bike, I take pictures of other bikes.

Hong Kong doesn't quite have the cycling culture we have here in London. The only bikes you really see are delivery bikes and even they are scarce.

I came home and it was spring in London. Still, I managed to bring a bit of Hong Kong's magical fog back for my first commute back through London.

Bike Beatz// Y.N.RichKids, My Bike

It's moments like these that make me think I'm too old to own a BMX. 

Mine and my BMX's combine age is more than Y.N.RichKids' put together and they have more members than So Solid Crew. A reference they are too young to get. 

Also, are kids into panpipes now? Really? I'm out.

Velo-times Day

Love, love, love.
So this is the one day of the year when you can tell people you love them. When is the day you get to tell people you hate them? Like really sit down over dinner and go for it, hate them in their face. Go speed hating.

 Here are some love links:
Check me out on the Cycle Chic Blog going on about how awesome tandems are.
For a Valentine's weekend filled with bike porn head to the London Bike Show.

From Chile

While I'm feeling chilly my buddy Alantl is in Chile.
I once got a bus from Santiago Chile to visit him in Buenos Aries. It looked really close on the map. 36 hours on the road is not close. DON'T laugh at me Argentina.
Anyway, here are two 'Use Your Bike' interventions in Valparaíso.
Wish I was there.

Bike Beatz// Markus Riva, Bike


Uh oh, someone learnt how to do split screen.
If you make it to end of this video you win a speed boat.

Bike Beatz// Kike Yañez, Scrayper Bike


I'm not sure what these kids are supposed to be doing but I'm pretty sure it's not this.
I feel like a lot of Post-it notes were hurt in the making of this video.

Bike Beatz// Breezee One, Bike Chase

I'm doing a week of Bike Beatz to take us into February. Well done, we made it through the most depressing month of the year. Honestly I don't know what the fuss is about, we haven't even had to do any snow riding.

One comment reads; "This is the worst thing that's ever happened to me".
Another says; "Well at least she knows how to pronounce Cinelli correctly; yes, it's che-nelly." 
I'm really feeling her Lycra geometric onesie.
