I'm currently a fair-weather cycler only. If there's even a teeny threat of rain i'll skip the bike and jump in the car. Come January, when we get rid of our second car, that won't always be an option. So i'm on the look-out for some wet-weather cycling gear. I'm also hoping to lose my 'frumpy mummy' cycling look and channel just a little 'copenhagen chic'.
I was therefore pleased to discover CycleStyle, specialising in 'stylish clothing and accessories for the urban cyclist'. I was even more pleased to discover that CycleStyle stocks loads of products made from natural and renewable materials like wool, wicker, and cotton.
As soon as Little Eco's bike seat comes off the back of my bike i'm certain i'll be investing in this Retro Canvas Utility Pannier. I'll then be shifting my huge front basket onto the back of my bike and i'm tempted to get a wicker basket for the front. I'm also extremely tempted by the Jenny Reflective Wool Cycling Cape. How gorgeous! I love that it's made of wool rather than horrid sweaty toxic pvc.
The wicker basket i've been admiring also comes in a cute kids size and Joyce of CycleStyle has generously offered to give one away to a Little Eco Footprints reader.
She also offered Little Eco one to review....
The super cute basket made Little Eco's $8 op shop bike look not so pre-loved. The sturdy basket simply slips onto the handlebars.
It also fits her scooter.
It can be carried by it's handle when not on a bike. Perfect for collecting eggs.
That doesn't look like eggs?
'What's that you're carrying?'
As you can see, it's one very versatile basket.
Would you like to win a kids wicker basket?

Little Eco received a complimentary kids wicker basket to review. I did not ask for, nor receive, payment for this post. I'm more than happy to help promote CycleStyle because anything that encourages urban cycling is a good thing.
