The Inverted Bike Shop
Ever wondered what to do with all those used tubes? CYQL is the perfect idea.
CYQL is a new ottoman concept made with recycled bicycle inner tubes.
The very unique pattern of this wrapping-like process gives CYQL its fantastic look.
The mix of tube’s quality, sizes, colors, and prints gives CYQL that unique industrial feeling and makes a real statement in any living room.
The core is made of an inflatable ball which gives the ottoman a nice bouncy support when sitting on it.
CYQL is available in 2 sizes.
The Invisible Bicycle Helmet
“If people say it’s impossible we have to prove them wrong.”
Design students Anna and Terese took on a giant challenge as an exam project. Something no one had done before. If they could swing it, it would for sure be revolutionary. The bicycle is a tool to change the world. If we use bikes AND travel safe: Life will be better for all.

Stage 5 Rouen-> Saint-Quentin 196.5km
The favourite sprinters in the peloton will definitely call on their team mates on the Saint-Quentin road. Those who are not sure of staying the course all the way to Paris will already have an opportunity to try their luck in the district of the Champs-ГlysОes provided that the train of sprinters arrives on time.
Stage 4: Abbeville -> Rouen. 214.5 km
Riders who regularly take part in the Tour of Picardy are familiar with the pitfalls that the region can hold in store for them. The experts of bordure formations may well take advantage of the wind that blows by the seaside during the whole first part of the stage, which will boasts very beautiful scenery. The favourite riders in the race will have to be extremely careful, as they know how hard it is to make up for lost time caused by their carelessness at the beginning of the Tour.

Then in the Monts du Boulonnais -five hills with a gradient of around 10 %-, the “puncheurs” will have the opportunity, as they did in Seraing, to provide the spectators and viewers with an outstanding performance. The finish will be judged at the end of a 700m long ascent
