Cycling is a growing craze here in London. Rachel, Jeremy and Rob, all cycle into work and rave about the benefits to their health and state of mind. I however am slightly more skeptical of taking a commuting option that has a high chance of me being mangled by a white courier van.
Velorution is a great blog about London cycling and Andrea (the author) has a cycling store of the same name at 18 Great Titchfield St., which aims to get people off the tube and onto the cycle lanes.
In terms of clothing, cycling kit is quite specialist and when it comes to messengers, has its own unique dress code as shown on PingMag. Worth checking out is Chrome Bags, who are featured in the article. They have some awesome looking messenger bags. Indigo can supply bags, and if you are interested in a bulk order of these kind of bags (also check out Crumpler) we can arrange to get them ordered and customised with your team/company logo.
We have done a number of cycling related jobs, most notably 5000 t-shirts for Lambeth Council’s ‘Good Going’ Campaign and t-shirts for the London to Brighton Cycle Ride.
As for me, I’m sticking with the train but with a strike looming maybe it really is time to switch?
