Style The Cyclist was a competition we held on Pinterest in 2012 to challenge you to think beyond the stereotype of what a cyclist ‘has’ to wear and what cyclists ‘should’ look like, and to think about translating the latest catwalk trends onto two wheels.
We asked you to pick some clothing from Harrods and show just how stylish two very busy London business people could look… whilst travelling by bike. We signed up Carolina Bucci and Sam Galsworthy to be your models. They are both very successful business people living hectic lives in London, both of whom ride bicycles and both of whom like to look good.
Congratulations to Adele and Clare for their winning boards. You can see more about the winning looks below.
