As soon as I spotted this yellow Bianchi I just had to buy it and carry on my collection of yellow and orange bikes (now counting 4). Been riding it for over a year now and enjoy every moment. Even if it’s a little unforgiving on Bristols bumps and hills.
I shall update it’s story later down the line
Website rebuild and new work to look at!
Here’s a quick update of what I’m up to. Check out www.chrissprice.co.uk for a look at some recent projects.
After graduated a little over 6 months ago I decided to jump head first into the freelance world. I have had the pleasure to work on some exciting projects both commercial and for my own enjoyment. Now a full time resident of Spike Design, a brilliant creative environment that’s a million times better then working from my bedroom.
I’m working 2 days a week with the awesome app developers Calvium. Designing everything from their app interfaces to branding and marketing.
Volunteering for The West of England Design Forum, filming and editing their regular talks. Still getting involved in anything Bristol bike related. and adding to my collection of stories and illustrations over at Every Bike in Bristol.
That’s about it for now, enjoy the new site and lets hope it stops raining!

This is my second bike since moving up to Newcastle, the first was thirty years old and a Classic Raleigh which I painted buttercup yellow with little daisies on it. Unfortunately it got to a point where it was unsafe for the amount of cycling I needed to do and I sold it for £30 at an antique shop. I understand a student bought it for £60 and was going to paint even more daisies on it so I am happy it will have another life elsewhere.
This bike is actually my Aunty’s boyfriends old bike. He is a keen mountain biker and actually had two bikes he wasn’t using and have me this for free! I nearly cried when he said I could have it. It’s had a service and the man in the bike shop was horrified when I said I was going to paint it but it didn’t feel like my bike yet, especially it being a mans bike. This time I’ve gone for green and I think I will paint little blue birds on it.
