Caroline Flack and Louise Thompson on magazine covers on Bobbin bikes

Bobbin Bikes In Magazines

Table of Contents

We think Bobbin bikes for kids and adults are pretty awesome. So it's always good to see that we're not the only ones!

Check out loads of cool features on Bobbin - like when Caroline Flack appeared on the front of Cosmopolitan magazine on a Bobbin bicycle. Or when Louise Thompson from Made In Chelsea sped past on one in Women's Health! 

Keep scrolling for more stories!


TV presenter Caroline Flack was spotted on the front cover of an issue of Cosmopolitan magazine. 

At the same time Louise Thompson of Made In Chelsea fame was seen getting fitter and feeling happier in Women's Health on another Bobbin bike.

What a week!


Living Etc

Living Etc is just the bees knees. One day I swear I'll own a house worthy of a feature in this gorgeous magazine! But in the meantime, here’s a Living Etc feature on mint colour bikes and, of course a Bobbin is right in the middle.

Conde Nast Brides

Two Bridesmaids on Bobbin Bikes?” you say? YES. And it’s in Conde Nast. And this isn’t even the first time Bobbin bikes have been used or suggested as props in Weddings. Take note! It’s a thing!

DT Magazine

It's really exciting for us to be interviewed as the founders of Bobbin. Lots of bike brands are big faceless corporations. Not Bobbin.

We've built up the business from a tiny shop and we’re really passionate about our bikes and customers. And to do this for Spanish magazine is double-cool! Maybe someone will recognise us when we next go to Barcelona...

See our other posts over at Amelia’s magazine. They're a long-treasured friend of Bobbin. In the early days of our business we worked with them on a bicycle-themed fashion shoot. You can even see Tom! They supplied a pink jumper, and Tom being Tom, he just made it look cool.

Vanity Fair

Look Magazine

Look magazine used a gorgeous red Bobbin bike in a Christmas-style spread. It’s a fun idea, but did they over-cook it with the massive sexy heels and glittery bustier? Get that girl a coat and scarf, before she catches a cold!!!

Gardens Illustrated

Gardens Illustrated is the kind of magazine you might find on a coffee table at a Country House hotel. Sink into a giant plaid sofa and fantasise about Jane Austen, Golden Retrievers and yes - a bicycle picnic.

Here’s a Bobbin Birdie presented as the perfect picnic companion. Who needs mates? It’s just you and your Bobbin hanging out under a tree in rural England.

Clemence Poesy was kind enough to illustrate a common Bobbin fantasy for us in Glamour magazine. And she nailed it: Bobbin bike and basket? TICK. Bunch of roses? TICK. Two vintage hat boxes carrying various essential items? TICK.

Artfully tousled hair and cute, not too sexy but a very sexy daytime ensemble? TICK. Top marks for cyclechic Clemence!

Velo City So Glossy

From Femme Actuelle 06/16: “Velo city so glossy. La marque londonienne présente son modéle printanier. On craque pour son coloris et son look retro qui donne envie de pédaler. Epuré avec ses trois vitesses pour se faufiler partout, il symbolise le nouveau plaisir de se déplacer en ville. Et à nous less belles gambettes fuselées!”


"Velo city so glossy. The London brand presents its spring model. We love its color and its retro look that makes you want to pedal. Sleek with its three speeds to get around, it symbolises the new pleasure of getting around town. And to us the beautiful tapered legs!"

And we've got load more colours of bikes helmets right here.
