…With Heinrich Haussler withdrawing from Le Tour with a recurring knee injury (helped in no small part by his recent crash with Cavendish),  journeyman and all-round nice guy Dan Lloyd is set to take his place on the Cervelo team. That brings the total number of Brits in this year’s Tour up to eight – the highest number since Great Britain fielded a team in 1968. In celebration of Lloyd’s call-up, illustrator Rich Mitchelson has created the above poster for you to print out and colour in. So break out the crayons and get creative!…

…Dynamo Press is a print making workshop producing posters and books with a bicycle influenced aesthetic. Cogs, bike parts and vintage cycling ephemera all feature heavily. Everything is hand made, limited edition and available to buy from their on-line shop

…if I had any spare cash (and any spare room in my flat) my next bike purchase would be a simple no-nonsense city commuting bike. Well, actually it would probably by a TT bike. And then maybe a cross bike for winter. But anyway, a city bike is definitely high on the list. And especially after taking a look at the range on offer from Tokyo Bike; made from Cro Mo steel and available in a range of colours and configurations, geared or singlespeed, sporty or utility-chic. Take a look yourself at their temporary pop-up shop opening on the 8th July on Commercial Street in East London
