One of my more unexpected interests is road cycling and I’m very excited to spend the next month glued to the Tour de France. Whether you’re joining me on the sofa, getting out on your own bike this summer, or just like animals doing human things, here’s some cute bicycle-themed shopping picks to enjoy.
Miffy”s Bicycle is a classic book I remember from my childhood and you can buy the cover image on china and enamel mugs at the Miffy Shop (UK). There’s also a rainy day version there that’s on even more products.
Rosalina the panda comes with everything she needs for a fun day out – a bike with trailer, rollerskates and basket full of snacks. Add her to your collection from Sylvanian Families (UK) or Calico Critters (US).
I hope to be like Henrietta the Hedgehog some day, cycling around in my cosy scarf to pick up some books and flowers. This enamel pin is by The Clever Clove (US) who has so many more cute animal pins.
Foxes riding a tandem bike around Paris makes for a sweet embroidery design and it’s available as a full kit or printed pattern from Peonies on Sunday (US).
Bel’s Art World (UK) has 3 cute cycling patches but how can you resist a pineapple riding a bike?
This Sakura notebook from Moleskine (global) is inspired by sakura season in Tokyo’s Ueno Park and has so many beautiful details inside plus a sheet of stickers.
If you actually have a favourite cyclist*, let me introduce you to Pro Cycling Trumps who create super cute illustrations of top riders in both the Men’s & Women’s tours. You can buy them in their shop (UK) as t-shirts, mugs, stickers, prints and more, plus packs of Top Trumps-inspired cards of course.
* Do tell me in the comments so we can nerd out/judge each other :)
