Replica PRO belts!!
With the Velo-City Global Conference starting this week in Adelaide, there have been plenty of bicycle-related activities to get involved in and take your attention away from all the rediculous controversy over the new Frome Street bikeway!
First off for us, was the opening night VELORAMA at the State Library forecourt, with wonderful weather (I was still wearing just a t-shirt at 9pm!!) returning to the city to mark the occasion. We set up our pop-up stall with Sylvain Chomet's wonderful Belleville Rendezvous on the big-screen behind us and various stalls dotted around the square.
Next up was the Crossfire Cup CX race (the first of a four-race series), for which we sponsored a few prizes; then the PACC Roller Frenzy which even featured Anna Meares on the startlist! Again we put a few prizes up for grabs and even took part for the hell of it!
And most recently we attended the Bikes and Baristas event in Ebeneezer Place. The street was pedestrianised for the day, with copious bike-parking, a swap-meet, bike-washes, massages, bike-based food vendors and of course BUCK!T belts and jewellery! We had a lovely time and got to meet a whole host of people and hopefully make some new friends too!

The Adelaide Velo-Fringe is here!
Still jet-lagged and feeling the cold a bit (it's slightly warmer over in europe right now!), but back to making belts and other goodies for you and many other happy people...
We were very excited to see the very first La Course - an exciting new race for professional women, held on the TdF Paris finishing circuit just hours before the men raced into town (don't worry, we only took one selfie and then cheered on the ladies for the rest of the race!)
Of course we also got to see the Tour de France itself when it rolled into town a few hours after the women's race, and watched the final few laps and the exciting sprint in a small local bar near the Louvre to complete the experience.
Thanks to everyone out there who took us up on
our holiday discount offer. Your patience is very
much appreciated. We'll certainly be busy for a while completing all the orders placed while we were away and getting them off to you in the post as soon as we can manage.
Next up we'll be making a variety of our products for some exciting new South Australian stockists (more about those soon!) as well as a few up-coming events and markets....
London: Speaking of stockists: Look Mum No Hands workshop-cafe-bar in Old Street, London now has a selection of BUCK!T belts, earrings and key-rings available to purchase, see them in the glass cabinet and ask a staff member for a closer, hands-on look!
Adelaide: Lookout for us at Treadly's Boucle de Burbs (24th August) where we're a co-sponsor of this great event; the upcoming market - A Boutique Life (31st August) in Belair and also the Adelaide Dirty Dozen (6th September), where we'll be doing a tyre-collection.
