So far today we have been looking at some of the images that have been captured from this years Tour de France. Now this event is not exactly for the cycling novices. Far from it in fact, although this competition is a bit too grueling for around 99% of the worlds population it still helps to raise the awareness of cycling which is fantastic.
If you would prefer to have a family day out on the bikes then have a hunt online for areas around you that are suitable for all levels of experience.

This summer has been exceptional for cycling, especially in Britain as Bradley Wiggins managed to secure both the Tour De France title and a Gold from the Olympics. Chris Hoy has also helped to raise the awareness about cycling by managing to capture six gold medals at the games. And of course Laura Trott winning gold in the omnium.
It looks like the future is bright for cycling in the UK and we wanted to have a look today at some of the images that have arisen from this years cycling events and hopefully inspire you to get out on your own two wheels and take to the roads and country side.
Well it appears that summer has landed in some places pretty early this year, fingers crossed that it lasts, so we thought we would conduct some market research to find out where you prefer to spend your sunny days.

February is a month full of big events; The Grammys happened just a few days ago and The Oscars gala will take place on February 26th.

There’s something about garden parties, the feeling of gathering your friends around a table and enjoying a nice day outside. If you want to welcome spring properly, celebrating a big event with your loved ones, have a look at the following tips for planning a special garden party.
Make a list with all the guests and make sure you prepare some nice invitation cards for your party. I would suggest making your own ones, people really appreciate something that is personal and unique, and you want your party to be remembered!

Study the available space, think of how you’re going to arrange the decoration. You’ll need a table that can seat all your guests and some nice lighting in case the party lasts until late!
Consider buying some new flowers and check the state of your lawn, if it has been damaged during winter you can opt for an artificial option. There is much more than the traditional green lawn, so why not trying some artificial grass colours on your garden?

A table for..?
The table is probably one of the key elements of your party. Consider how your guests are going to be seated around it, you want them to be able to interact with each other.
Take some time for thinking of decorative items you can use on your table, there are so many alternatives and most of them can be really cheap. If you feel you need some help, have a look at this garden parties bundle and get inspired!
If there’s quite a lot of people attending the party, the best food option might be preparing some tapas and nibbles. I especially like this selection of yummy and easy recipes!
