In a world that increasingly favours a green transportation mode, electric cars are becoming more and more popular. Moreover, France is aiming for the end of gasoline car sales by the end of 2040, setting up several initiatives. Speaking of green energy, what better means of transportation than using the strength of our own body? At this time of the year, a bit chillier but still sunny, the bicycle becomes an excellent option. 2018 will mark the 200th anniversary of its invention!

The city of Copenhagen, Denmark was named the most bike-friendly city in 2017. In this list, we can count cities like Amsterdam, Strasbourg, Munich, Barcelona and even Montreal with the 20th position. Bicycles, more and more accessible with Bixi or Vélib-style bike stations, experiences a popularity rebound.

Summer is almost over. However, the sun is still shining bright and strong, short sleeves are still appropriate, even if worn with a little sweater on the side. The heavy fabric of this skirt is perfect for the beginning of autumn. Even on a bicycle, it fits perfectly. This skirt bought this summer is unfortunately no longer available; on the other hand, Ted Baker offers new models similar that I suggest below. Simply click on your favourite one for more details!
