Combining genuine style with practicality is an art form, and its what we really believe in here at BEG Bicycles. Finding products designed for cycling that work really well and look as good on or off the bike. So it’s a real pleasure for us to be able to announce our latest cycling accessory collaboration.

{Drum roll….}

Introducing the BEG Bicycles Michaux Club Limited Edition collection of handbags, made in Britain and designed for cyclists.

Created for modern women, the collection combines the desire to be elegant and stylish with the practical requirements of busy lifestyles and the functional needs of transportation by bikes. The Beg Bicycles Michaux Club collection allows you to cycle with ease, and whether you’re conquering a daily commute to work or a leisurely ride at the weekend, Michaux Club bags not only provide the answer to your cycling concerns, but also take you from bike to boardroom in an instant. No one would ever know you are sporting the latest in rider safety accessories. Ingenious features such as 3M reflective detailing for safer night time cycling and a cross body support strap are all given a carefully considered aesthetic.

 

 

The bags are constructed with a waterproof cotton canvas outer layer to ensure your belongings are kept safe and dry whatever the weather, combined with beautifully detailed, highest quality British vegetable tanned leather. Each bag cleverly incorporates unique technical elements including various fastening options, practical pocket positioning and discreet reflective inbuilt design.

 

In line with our own principals of keeping it local, Michaux Club are committed to creating their products as close to home as possible and believe manufacturing here in Britain is a defining aspect of their authenticity. The BEG Bicycles Michaux Club collection is hand made in the heart of the Lake District, on the factory’s original 300 year old site, and by one of the few truly British bag manufacturers still remaining in our country.

 

 

The Beg Bicycles Michaux Club collection comprises three uniques styles of bag, available in an exclusive to BEG new colourway, Stone, as well as black.  Designed to look beautifully elegant, both with the BEG Bicycles ladies range of bicycles, or indeed with your wheels of choice, the collection will meet all your cycling needs, and look beautifully stylish to boot!

 

The go-anywhere rucksack: Lightening

 

 

Sleek, spacious and perfect for a busy lifestyle, the Lightening rucksack extends to fit your shopping or gym kit, and rolls down for less ambitious items, keeping all your belongings dry. From your cycle commute to work via the gym, with a quick food shop on the way home, this is a great all round style. Accessible pockets allow you to reach your belongings whilst cycling just in case you need to refer to your trusty map or mobile!

 

The must-have saddle bag: Shadow

 

Sigh. Was ever a saddle bag so stylish – or so versatile? The Shadow saddlebag clips beautifully onto the back of your saddle and then cleverly transforms into either a sweet little backpack, or a very stylish shoulder or crossbody bag, simply by re-fastening the convertible straps. Throw in a lipstick, your purse and keys, a mobile and a puncture repair kit and the day (and night!) are yours.

 

The boardroom to weekend bag: Zodiac

 

Cycle in style – and safety. A smart shoulder bag that can be used in every scenario from cycling to work meetings, or for leisure and pleasure. The Zodiac is worn across the body whilst cycling, and the anti-swing strap keeps your bag safely in position as you ride. Beautifully incorporated reflective panels are an integral part of the design and will ensure that you are safe and sound on dark nights.

 

The collection is now in stock and available to purchase for immediate shipping here.
