18 June 2007: Style on two wheels

StyleT’ain’t what you do, it’s the way that you do it. Andrea Casalotti of Velorution and Jean-Marie Orhan (Frenchman-about-town and founding member of the Tweed Cycling Club) offer sartorial advice to urban cyclists. Tribute is paid to the stylish riders of the golden era of professional bicycle racing, including a pilgrimage up Le Mont Ventoux to the spot where stylish British cycling world champion Tom Simpson collapsed and died in the 1967 Tour. Philippe Bordas, former cycling reporter for the L’Equipe newspaper, laments the new era of blood doping that has replaced heroic athlete-artists with boring man-machines.

Upcoming events: Pret A Rouler fashion show on Thursday 21 June. Rapha’s Smithfield Nocturne on Saturday 23 June, featuring an elite criterium race, ‘Le Mans start’ folding bicycle race and bike messenger mashup. Plus Continental Drift DJs.
