Here’s my black chic bicycle, everyday’s road dirt included. Nor sun, nor rain can stop us from riding daily!
Depending on weather and temperature we’re commuting 5-40 km daily. Shorter distance are combined with my spaceous Renault Kangoo. We’re a real magic team!
From time to time you get to see a happy familly like this, all together on one bike.
It’s not the destination, it’s all about the trip.
I stopped at the city beach the other day to have cup of coffee and to enjoy a layed-back-urban-Sunday-pulse.

The other bike was pure city cruiser with a very chic small detail: a ladybird on the steering tube.
More I’m observing bicycles rolling around Ljubljana, more I see that SUV hype is here in full effect. But than again, this could be because we are very sporty people.

I bet there are thousand laying in basements and sheds. At least I see piles of them every time local cleanig service is picking up old stuff, that people prepare infornt of their houses and is then taken to the junkyard.
Yeah, those year, long before mountainbikes , were much more cycle chick. Our local bicycle producer ROG even had a model called Holland. And don’t label me commy-nostalgic.

Here’s the firs taste: city was pretty much empty this afternoon, it was Saturday and…there wasn’t much chic cyclists. I didn’t bother with those in spandex I met on my 20km or so trip to the centre.
