To this end I'm a big fan of 'cycle chic', aka showing people cycling in their ordinary clothes and looking comfortable and stylish in the process, so today I'm sharing some snaps with you all that people have shared via my London Cycle Chic group on Flickr; please feel free to add your own pictures to the group and every month or so we'll run a 'best of' blog entry here at i b i k e l o n d o n.
Good luck to everyone using the cycle hire bikes for the first time today; take your camera and bring me your cycle chic!
