I don't know if a swap like this has been done yet but I was wondering if anyone would be interested, I've seen a few cool bike related crafts kicking around and I have a few ideas for my own bike related crafts.

Some of my ideas are a cozy so I can fit a bottle of beer into my water bottle cage, some bags to actually attach to my bike for carrying junk around in, jewelery out of used bike parts, recycled tire belts/other stuff and the list goes on and on.

Some bike related crafts that are inspiring:

It's a good time of year for it, too!  Is it sad that it's only January and I'm already dreaming of when I'll be able to ride my bike again?

It's not sad to already dream of riding your bike!
I have a trainer for my bike and I still wish it were summer ever single day!

And Kaissa- we could always do sign ups next month since there are already tons of swaps going on right now. Sign ups ending in mid-February and send dates being end of March would probably be perfect. Everyone would get their bike related goodies just as it starts to warm up!

btw, does anyone else name their bikes? Mine's name is Mary Poppins  Grin we just refer to her as Poppins usually though, as in " I'll just get Poppins out and nip up to the shop" LOL


I do!  Mine's named Gloria. Smiley

I'm interested!  I missed out on the last one I saw on here, and my boyfriend likes bikes even more than me.  I still ride my bike around and am supposedly getting a lot of mileage for the type of bike i have (it's just a normal cruiser--heavy with lots of suspension).  i bought it with five free tuneups and everytime I take it in they guy is like "dude... what have you been doing with this bike?"

NOT TAKING IT UP MOUNTAINS AND ON THE BEACH IF THAT IS WHAT YOU ARE THINKING BIKE MAN. 

My bike's name is Ruby. Count me in.

My boyfriend also likes bikes a little more than me! He's basically what got me into bikes.
I started out with a cheap-o cruiser just for short fun rides (with the obligatory stop for ice cream!) and fell head-over-heels in love with a road bike which I then saved up all my cash to buy. I can barely even ride my cruiser anymore because it gets me huffing and puffing it's so darn heavy!

My road bike is named Lily. My cruiser is yet un-named, usually I just call her 'the beast'!

Reading and talking about my bike love makes me wish we could have some sort of Craftster group bike ride!

Seriously I feel your pain with the huffing and puffing.  I can't decide if I'll use a road bike often enough to warrant the expense... it seems like my current bike is not a good way to know because I use it less DUE to its unroadliness.

A crafting bike ride would be killer!  We could ride around to different bike/craft shops.  There aren't any real craft stores within biking distance here, but I have ridden my bike to a yarn shop and PaperSource.  I'm going to try to ride to a few more similar places around the city once I get a little faster/more familiar with the city.

oh, i so hope this happens soon.
i'm just finishing up my first swap, and a bicycle swap would be ideal.
although, i am more into making crafts with bike themes than i am making crafts for a bike...
