Event 活動 - Denim for Mobile Lifestyles Exhibition 牛仔X城市單騎合作設計展
縱觀世界城市發展的大勢潮流，如歐美日本台灣，以致東南亞等地，大家都會踩單車通勤上班上學約朋友出街，作為最環保健康的移動工具，但在香港這種風氣並不盛行，原因有很多，不過其中一個最明顯的阻礙是硬件配套不足 – 沒有明顯的單車徑可以跟隨，踩單車或駕駛的都無所適從。因為這樣所以大家都覺得很難入手，所以很少人踩，而因為這樣，政府亦覺得沒必要去做好/改善規劃建設。

Tin Kwong Ride Members 天光 Ride 成員
天光 Ride | Laura Yeung
This is Laura. I'm a regular office worker who enjoys bike commuting. It's great for the environment, health, and I get to know my city better. Getting to work became more fun when I ride to the office along with a group of interesting people. I was grateful when we received compliments from passersby – "Well done waking up early for bike commute!"
天光 Ride | Eddy Hui
Hi, I am Eddy HUI. I am a designer and design educator. I have joined Tin Kwong Ride from its first day, i.e. more than 2 years ago. I would like to show Hong Kong there are other environmental friendly options and the importance of autonomy. It is easier than most people thought when planning Tin Kwong Ride, and probably choosing where to have our breakfast is the hardest decision. When a daddy told his daughter that we chose bicycle as the mean of transportation, it was remarkable as I really want our next generation can think of cycling as an option.
天光 Ride | Chloe Ho
I'm Chloe, a citizen of HK that like to bike community, and it's zero carbon emissions. Since I know Tin Kwong Ride, I have no doubt to join it. Feel so peaceful can share the road with other people have the same concept. Talking about the difficulties of planning Tin Kwong Ride, I just worried about how to leave my sweet blanket. You know that it is such a temptation. During the journey, we meet some single rider, we kindly invite them to join us. It's just so simple between people.
我係Chloe，一個喜歡零碳排放單車通勤的香港普通市民。自從知道有天光Ride這項活動，就毫無疑問地參加了。能與有相同理念的朋友一齊分享道路，心裡感覺平和歡愉。關於與加Tin Kwong Ride的挑戰，我只擔心如何離開那溫暖的被窩，它是多麼的誘人。在路上遇到獨行的單車朋友，誠邀參加我們的活動。人與人之間本來就是這樣簡單。
天光 Ride | Kelvin Kwan
Hi I am Kelvin, I have been bike commuting for 5 years now. I do most of my commuting on bicycle and most of the days to and from work. And I have always believe that, geologically and environmentally, it makes perfect sense to consider bicycling as a viable option for commuting both on Hong Kong island and Kowloon side.
With this belief, I have join Tin Kwong Ride as one of the helpers, in hope to share my experience and knowledge on riding on open roads and hopefully can inspire others to do so and consider making their short journey commuting on a bicycle as much as possible and regularly.
I would hope there could be better traffic planning to include bicycle as one of the means of transportation as well as facilities that allow bicycle commuters to safety park their bicycles as well as refreshes up after they get to the end of the journey.
The last of Tin Kwong Ride to me was the most memorable one. over 150 bicycle, commuting to work at the same time. To me it not simply gathering a large group of cyclist riding at the same time, but is to show people that it is actually possible.
我係 Kelvin, 踩咗單車通勤已經五年多了。 我一直認為香港島同九龍半島地理上係非常適合的。加上近年陸上嘅交通擠塞、港鐵嘅飽和， 更加令我覺得單車通勤係一個非常好同實際嘅短途交通（5~8公里內，大半個香港島北岸，正正是天光Ride 嘅路線）選擇。
正因為以上原因，我參加天光Ride 係希望可以傳播達依一個理念，同分享我踩車通勤嘅心得同經驗。 亦因為咁， 我好高興可以遇到一班志同道合嘅朋友，一齊朝著同一方向進發。
150人天光Ride 可算係我印象最深刻嘅一次。令我哋覺得 we are not alone, 好齊心咁去證明俾人睇 "只要去做，咩都有可能", 亦希望其他道路使用者了解到我哋都係交通系通嘅一部分。
Denim Outfit 牛仔作品
Classicsanew | Janko Lam
Classics Anew is a hybrid fashion label merging the Chinese traditional aesthetics with contemporary elements. It aims to bring the Chinese traditional clothing to the modern age.
Cheongsam is the icon of Chinese traditional clothing, it usually delivers a feeling of femininity. This time I tried to turn Cheongsam into a daily cycling wear, this is a challenge to me yet it allows to explore the possibility of Cheongsam.
In my design, to facilitate the function as a cycling wear, the dress form of a Cheongsam was replaced by a jumpsuit design. Rows of buttons were added to the side seams, so the wear can adjust the length of hem in order to fit their cycling needs. Inspired by the metal buttons of denim jacket and the metal parts of a bicycle, metal buttons were largely used in this Cheongsam jumpsuit.
Blue Kobo | Osmond Lee
The theme of this design is “Denim Carnival”, vivid colors such as bright blue and shocking orange were mixed with lacer printed denim fabric. On the functionality aspect, stretchable fabric was used on the back and shoulder parts, to give more room to the wearer, especially when cycling. The back pockets on the hem of the jacket, allows cyclists to carry their belongs.
The jeans were designed with engineered 3D cut and a hidden elastic back yoke was installed to give extra comfort to cyclists. Reflective prints on both jacket and jeans keep the cyclists visible during night cycling.
YMDH | Jason Lee
The theme of this design is “DD Biker”, it represents the fusion of Denim and Bicycle. The first “D” represents Denim and the second “D” represents the D in YMDH. YMDH as a designer brand we tried to give a new interpretation to the connection between denim and cycling wear.
The inspiration is from the motorcycle biker wear in the 80s and 90s, such as the style of Andy Lau in a famous Hong Kong movie calls “A Moment of Romance”. So the design included a biker jacket and a pair of motorcycle styled jeans. Different levels of washed denim fabrics were use to give a touch up to the design.
今次創作的主題是「DD Biker」，我們希望可以把牛仔及單車元素結合，第一個「D」 代表Denim，第二個「D」代表YMDH。創作會以YMDH的演繹手法展示單車手與牛仔之 間的關係，希望可以擦出新火花。
今次創作的靈感原自80至90年代的電單車手的服裝，當中包括電影「天若有情」中劉 德華先生的造型。另外，除了顧及單車手的日常需要，我們都嘗試了加入併布的元素 及配上不同洗水的牛仔布創作出更有趣的設計。
Kenaxleung Studio | Kenax Leung
I designed a cyclist backpack in this co-design project. The inspiration of this backpack was from the triangular body frame of a bicycle, this concept was interrupted by using a 3D cutting on the form of the backpack.
Functionality is the key of this design, the back of the backpack was made to fit on a human body perfectly to maximize the user’s comfort. Various partitions were designed to accommodate laptop and helmet.
Water repellent denim fabric was used to give extra protection to the backpack, and a rain cover is also included, to deal with heavy raining situration.

The inspiration of this design was from the old photos of female cyclists. As I am not a fan of functional cycling wear, this inspired me to design an outfit to fit in the daily cycling life of a modern female. This design aims to serve both function as a casual cycling wear as well as a daily wear. Details such as draw string and buckles were added so that the wearer can adjust the length of the dress according to actual need. There is a back pocket on the waist line, this serves as an accommodation for small belongs and water bottle during cycling.
