Giles Deacon said: "I am thrilled to be collaborating with Sky Ride this year. As a keen cyclist myself I have designed a limited edition bag that is both functional and eye catching - and will make sure women look and feel fantastic on their bikes. The bag acts as a modern day bicycle basket but can also be used as a day to day bag. It's the ideal shape and size to use on your bike but also at work or out with friends. I hope women love it and hopefully it will help to dispel the myth that being active means having to sacrifice your sense of style."
Sky’s Director of Cycling Tricia Thompson added: “It’s an incredible time for cycling with all the success we’ve experienced this summer - there has never been a better time to be inspired and into cycling. That’s why we are delighted to be working in collaboration with Giles on this exclusive bag to encourage the fashion conscious to get on their bikes, helping them to look fabulous on the move and still carry all their essentials.”
Sky Ride is a national campaign from British Cycling and Sky to get one million more people cycling regularly by 2013.
