Audrey Hepburn and her Yorkshire Terrier Mr Famous liked to get around on a bike. Other famous fans of peddle power include Paul Smith, George Clooney, Hugh Jackman and Brad Pitt.
So here are our top four rides that will make you feel like you’re cycling with the stars.
Colour your ride with Jellybean Bikes. Customise your ride anyway you want and like their name, these bikes are colourful and sweet as. We love them. Suits minimalists and maximalists alike.
Pashley is England’s longest established bicycle manufacturer, designing and hand building their bikes. Go for the flagship Princess or Roadster models. Splendid indeed. Will appeal to traditionalists.
Martone Cycling was started by Marc Jacobs’ ex, so the bikes were always going to look good. They have men’s and women’s frames in five colours – black, white, red, gold and silver. Go for gold. Will appeal to the fashion pack.
Bianchi has 125 years of sporting history behind them and have been ridden by world champions. Not just for high performance athletes, the Italians tick all the boxes so you’ll look good on a Milano Dama in the Turismo range in must-have ‘celeste’. If you want to go to town, there’s a ‘Bianchi Urban Bike’ by Gucci. Will appeal to design and sporting purists. Perfetto.
