Following our recent article about a gold-plated bike, we bring you news of a Bike Show, fittingly in Monaco (where else?), that celebrates the most luxurious and expensive bikes and accessories on the market. Have your credit cards ready!
LIKEBIKE at the Grimaldi Forum, Monte Carlo, from 3-5 April, will allow you to get up close and personal with beautiful road bikes, high-tech bicycles, electric bikes, mountain bikes and a wide range of accessories, at prices ranging from a tad to eye-wateringly pricey.
My personal favourite is the Malle Bicyclette, the very embodiment of French Chic.
Made by Moynat – a Parisian company founded in 1849 by trunk-maker Pauline Moynat – in conjunction with Italian custom builder Abici Italia, it includes a picnic trunk for those dejeuners sur l’herbe so beloved by the French. It’s possibly the most expensive picnic basket ever!
£33,658 / US$51,000 / AU$65,000 / €45,000 www.moynat.com
