There we go, we've just bought our tickets for The Tweed Run London 2015 this weekend! For those who haven't heard about it, this is a metropolitan bicycle ride with a bit of style. They take to the streets in their well-pressed best, and cycle through the city's iconic landmarks.

, these stunning pieces of equipment have got to be the most beautiful bikes on the road today! You can't buy happiness but you can buy a bike and that's pretty close.Leather Bluetooth Speaker
Based on the iconic transistor radio designs of the 1960s, these were created with the highest quality audio circuitry and wrapped in a classic hand sewn perforated leather case to protect them. Who says Bluetooth speakers need to look like ugly plastic? Perfect to pop on your bike.

Unless you have been living under a rock for the past five years you will be aware that this country is in the grip of a cycling pandemic. Even the Tour de Francearrived this summer, with the Grand Départ in Yorkshire. All the brits are in the mood.
The number of Londoners cycling to work has doubled in the last ten years, with Londoners braving the busy roads to escape sweltering tube temperatures, chaotic rush hours and increased commuting costs. So is all about being ‘cycle-friendly’and I am quite like this as I was living in Aarhus last year and I must say that for Danes is a way of life, is part of their culture.
Cycling is one of the easiest ways to fit exercise into your daily routine because it's also a form of transport. It saves you money, gets you fit, reduces stress and is good for the environment...What else? Oh yes, cycling benefits the whole of London as it reduces pollution and drastically cuts congestion on public transport.
As the popularity of cycling grows and grows, here is our selection of products we have prepared for you to be in the mood too. Coming soon. Very bristish. Hope you like it.
This is one of the most unusual and also one of the favourite sections in our shop
. That's the main reason for this post. Pian, pianino we have created a great collection of unique items carefully selected by us on our trips to different countries. Peter and I love to travel and discover precious objects that you normally can't find elsewhere. He loves the South of France, and knows almost every hidden market. So it's very exciting every time that he goes hunting...!
They are OOAK (One Of A Kind) because there is just ONE of each, as they are original vintage pieces. That's why they are so special. We only pick the ones that, despite being more than thirty years old, are still in very good condition. So, if you like something you'd better hurry...He who hesitates is lost! Take a look, check it out
and you'll see.
