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 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!
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...

Vanity Fair gave us a nice little feature on our special edition Dip Dye bike. This model is so gorgeous - it looks like a crocus flower. If you’re feeling brave, this bike will turn heads with its two tone yellow and white paint finish.

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!
La Razon in Spain featured our lovely Bobbin Birdie.

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!”
