Bicycles

So sports aren’t necessarily what we do most of here at Vili Flik, but despite that this is going to be a post about bicycles. Vintage bicycles, mind you, we have no tolerance for the new hip tightswearing bicycle crowd who just happen to combine their workout with a trip to the mall. Fail. But, a lot of fashionable people ride bicycles too, and in impeccable outfits no less, so let’s have a looksie on how a bike can be, no, not transportation, darling, but an accessory to accentuate your style.

Let steal some history from wikipedia: “The dandy horse was the first human means of transport to use only two wheels in tandem and was invented by the German Baron Karl von Drais. It is regarded as the forerunner of the modern bicycle and was introduced by Drais to the public in Mannheim in summer 1817 and in Paris in 1818.”

“Further innovations increased comfort and ushered in a second bicycle craze, the 1890s’ Golden Age of Bicycles.”

Yes, that is Katharine and Audrey you see above, both busy proving my point.

Love, Hanna
