Mom and Daughter Cycle Chic – matching bikes!

I was lucky enough to catch this adorable twosome on a bike ride yesterday.  Check out their matching bikes and baskets with Betty Basket Liners.


In 2009 – Charleston was all about the bike

At least according to our great online news source – The Digitel.  We agree.  They did an Top 10 List for things and news in Charleston. Bikes, and yours truly made #5. We are thrilled! Hopefully together we’ve got the momentum going for some real changes in 2010.

So hop on over to the Digitel to read the full story and see the other numbers. And you can read an excerpt below.

“It’s probably safe to say that both sides aren’t happy where 2009 has left the state of bike accommodation and regulation in the Charleston area, but from the continued involvement of Charleston Moves, to the firm establishment of the Holy City Bike Co-op, to a ladies-only bike outing, we’ve seen that bikes have been placed in an an elevated social and political status.”

Beach Chic Bike

A reader of Charleston Cycle Chic sent this beautiful photo in of her beach bike!  I love the story behind this – her husband pulled it from the neighbors trash and fixed it up for her!   It goes to show you with just a little ‘umph’ you can turn someone else’s throw away into your very own little gem.  Check out all the daisies…Did you know they are a symbol of childhood innocence?  Perfect.
