How to Have the Cutest Bike Ever

1 Aug 2015


Those who follow me on social media or you know follow me in real life, would definitely know that I have recently bought myself a beautiful vintage bike in mint. In fact it was one of my New Year's Resolutions to buy one. Tick! I'm adorable, okay well mostly I'm pretty cute. Which means that I could not be seen unless I also had the cutest bike ever to ride. 

So here are my super easy steps to help you also have a super cutie bicycle. 

The Bike 

I got my bicycle from Reid Cycles. For my Aussie Babes, this place is rad. They have stores all around Australia, but they have free bicycle shipping on their website, and 10 different types of Vintage ladies bicycles available. With 10+ colours to choose from you're sure to find a colour that you'll love. I always sort have had my heart set on a baby blue bike, but they're very common, and once I spied this beauty in Mint I knew I was done looking.


The Basket

I don't know about you but if I'm riding around I need to have some kind of stuff with me, and what if I rode to a store and bought some stuff? Where would I put it? I bought my basket at the same time as my bike from Reid's. There are so many different baskets to choose from as well as different colours again. I could also have chosen to have a basket on the back of my bike instead, but I went with the more traditional girly choice.  There is an option to add on a pretty basket liner but I didn't get one of these either. 


I knew that when I got a bike, I wanted to have flowers on the basket all pretty like. This lovely decoration only cost me $7. Can you believe it?? I went to Hot Dollar, a local junk store and spent ages trying to pick out the perfect faux flowers. I chose one with lots of leaves, flowers that weren't too over the top and also had a long stem which meant I could easily wrap and thread it through the basket. It only took about 5 minutes to do, and I am sooo happy. I mean how fun and pretty do they look? 

The Bell

I wouldn't have thought this was a very big deal, and it probably isn't. Unless you actually have a bell that is super lovely. The local markets are on today and this fantastic store Beep Bicycle Bells sells the absolute cutest hand painted bells. They had so many too choose from, (decisions are so tough!) and after ringing a bunch and picking quite a few up and inspecting them repeatedly I picked this adorable fox bell! With Josh's approval. I was way too keen to run home and install it onto my bike as you can see. 


If you don't feel inspired to buy your own bicycle now and make it all cute, then what is wrong with you?? Lovely weather is coming our way and there will be so many opportunities to take your cutie bicycle out for a spin! Or that's how I feel anyway!


I hope you enjoyed!

Do you have a bicycle? What have you done to personalise it?

  14. Very cute bike, indeed! The mint color is stunning. The thought of getting a bike has been on my mind recently, though since I'm planning on using it for daily commuting I don't think cute would be a good choice since it'll get a lot of wear and tear ;(

  17. Omg, too adorable! The colour of the bike and the bells are so cute, gah! I definitely do not see myself riding such a bike because I'm just not one to flaunt cuteness, but I do want to get a bike and pimp it up now, haha
