Bike Town

Recently I was invited to the London opening of an exciting bike shop. tokyobike is perfectly located in the heart of Shoreditch where it seems to me that cycling has become the main mode of transport. On arrival the street was bustling with guests. Eventually I managed to manoeuvre my way through (if you have ever been to the Notting Hill Carnival you’ll know what I mean) and grab a chance to get a good look at the bikes from inside the shop. The small company was founded in 2002 and the name was derived from the design of the bikes. In the same way as a mountain bike was designed for the mountains so tokyobike was designed for Tokyo hence the name.
With iPad in hand here are few snapshots of my favourites.
