Dear Cycle Shop,
We both knew it wasn’t right.
And now we’ve met someone else. Started by a mother-daughter team obsessed with cycling and a knack for doing things with style, Beg strikes the perfect balance between charm and practicality (with not an ounce of carbon fibre in sight).
Manufactured by a 65-year-old Belgian bicycle-making family, the three-speed rides come in cheery, 1930s-inspired colours like pink or green and are outfitted with leather saddles and retro chrome headlamps. But it’s the little things — like willow baskets, Irish lambswool blankets, and leather coolers, flasks and satchels — that really move us.
Looks like we won’t be riding into the sunset together after all.
Available online at begbicycles.com, £30-£745.
