Light up for Christmas


Happy Monday All! We hope you had a fun weekend.

The Christmas lights in London should definitely not be missed. So we’re thinking of touring around them sometime before Christmas- why don’t you plan a ride with your friends?


The lights in Duke of York Square last year


To celebrate the switching on of Christmas lights across London, we’re giving away some of our Bikeminded pocket lights. Just let us know below why you need some Bikeminded lights and we’ll be sending them out to the best answers.

So, back to the Christmas lights tour.  Of course there are the big ones- Oxford Street, Regent Street and Covent Garden which are always worth seeing.  They were switched on last Monday. 


In Kensington and Chelsea, we’d highly recommend a tour of the Portobello and Golborne Christmas lights which will be switched on next week.  There are also the amazing lights in the Chelsea area which were switched on on Saturday.  And a great place to end your tour?  Taking in the lights around Knightsbridge.  There are the fantastic displays up Sloane Street and of course Harrods and Harvey Nichols for their lights and window displays.

    I would quite like these lights, one so that I stay as bright as the lights down Kings Road! -Festive
    and two because having lights on your make helps to be seen and not die -not so festive but just as important!

    I’d love some lights, because my route to work takes me through Hyde Park, which can get pretty dark this time of year! The more visible you are, the better – I’ve got some battery lights that clip onto my bike, but I think it’s even better to have lights on yourself, as well as your wheels – the brighter the better!

    I am a romantic guy. These are candles that light my way home on my Brompton every single autumn evening. ,

    If I would have Bikeminded battery lights, my snails will thank you;)
