I met Rachel a few months ago at my friend Sandra’s birthday party at Chotto Matte in London.

I was immediately captured by her sophisticated humor and her incredibly strong energy.

I loved her even more when I discovered that she founded and designed a very funky, urban chic brand of single speed, limited edition bikes, called Brake Bikes.

Like me, she is very conscious about the environment and she actively respects the planet by using public transport and bikes whenever its possible.

Her concept was born in L.A. and developed in London. The result is a phenomenal fusion of Californian vib and British tradition, which keeps you fit by using your own bodyweight: just what the Doctor ordered!

Rachel is an inspiration “simply” because she is an enlightened soul and a woman who is actively committed to transform the world.

I simply ADORE her and her bikes! Let’s hope that she will design a “mum edition” soon!

Here’s what she said about herself:

Ho incontrato Rachel qualche mese fa al compleanno della mia amica Sandra da Chotto Matte a Londra. Sono rimasta subito affascinata dal suo sofisticato humor e dalla sua fortissima energia. Ma mi è piaciuta ancora di più quando mi ha raccontato di aver fondato e disegnato una marca di biciclette davvero unica, funky e urban chic, chiamata Brake Bikes.

Come me, è molto attenta al rispetto per l’ambiente e cerca di usare i trasporti pubblici e la bicicletta ogni volte che è possibile.

Il suo concetto è nato a L.A. ed è stato sviluppato a Londra. Il risultato è una bici mono marcia nata da una fusione fenomenale tra California vib e tradizione inglese.

Rachel è un’ispirazione “semplicemente” perchè ha un’anima piena di Luce e una donna impegnata attivamente a trasformare il mondo.

Semplicemente: ADORO lei e le sue bici! Spero che disegnerà presto una limited edition per mamme!

Come ti chiami? Rachel Thomas

Di dove sei? Blackheath, London

Dove vivi? Blackheath, London

Quanti anni hai? 33
