With climate change and the affects of Covid-19 on public transport, people are opting to jump on their bikes - cycling to work is now more popular than ever!
"Think of bicycles as ridable art that can just about save the world"
- Grant Petersen Bicycle Designer
Here at Burnt Soul we're happy to say that we're all part of the cycling gang. As well as cycling to work, we all enjoy riding to the countryside, down to Clevedon for a chilly swim and ever off on cycling holidays, we just can't get enough!
With the our release of our new cycling shorts and leggingsit only felt right to head out on our bikes together putting the lycra to action...
As we all cycle to work, we're always keen to find out about new accessories available to make our cycle lives more fun. So after searching the internet, we've found some fun but practical cycling accessories to keep you rolling safely and stylishly. Some of the items are also sustainable which is even better! ♻️✨
As the winter nights begin to drawn in, it won't be long before we're cycling to and from work in the dark...but don't fret! You'll be sure to light up the streets with these Reflective Leopard Print stickers, they'll have your bike looking purrfect - ready to ride though the night in the concrete jungles.
The reflective panels of our catsuits will look amazing with these fun additions to your noble steed (trusty bike), so get your catsuit on and get ready to turn some heads.
2. CYCOLOGY CYCLING JERSEY
No cycling venture is complete without a little extra lycra, this Pedal Flower Jerseyfrom Cycology is not only dreamy but its windproof 😍
The breathable fabric keeps your warm and allows any excess body heat to escape - perfect for the cool and windy days ahead! Their collection of crazy, colourful jerseys are not to be missed either and would look so cool with our Leggings (or Shorts if you can bear the cold!). The BFF Leggings are born to be paired with any and every print you can think of or do some cool print clashing with our Thunder Print.
As you all know how obsessed we are with leopard print, we couldn't resist including this gorgeous pannier bag and matching sadle cover. There is nothing more pleasing than practical items in animal prints...it's also waterproof! Pair with our OG Joan print Catsuit, Leggings, Bodysuit or Shorts for that head-to-toe leopard print we all live for.
There's nothing worst than your phone dying when you're out on a big cycle trek!
Cycle2Chargeis a USB charger for your bike, the neat little number sits on your headset and charges as you pedal! We're no bike mechanics here but it's assembly looks pretty straight forward too.
5. RYDON SOLAR LIGHTS
Created out of frustration from market bike lights not working as they should, Netherlands based design Hugo Van Watering created the Rydon bike light!
It has an integrated solar panel so will charge as you ride! (If you're like us here in the UK and the sun doesn't shine as much as we would like it can be charged with a USB)
It also features a theft proof steel mounting so it will stay nice and safe!
6. LIVALL MT1 HELMET
As well as looking and feeling amazing, there's nothing more important than keeping your head safe whilst you explore the streets on wheels. The Livall MT1 is a smart helmet! Not only does it protect your head, it includes:
Integrated HiFi stereo loudspeakers inside the helmet above the ears & microphone
Lighting system on the back to use when signalling
Protective wear has never looked so fancy! Robyn hails this helmet as her go-to biking accessory as to it allowing her to keep the dance tunes on wherever she goes whilst keeping safe enough to be aware of her surroundings.
We suggest donning our brightest prints for your Saturday cycles to turn every ride into a party. Our newest collection prints are the brightest you can get (and give a nod to our temperamental British weather 😂)
Not forgetting our bikes will need a good old scrub from time to time! Green Oil are offering the greenest bike maintenance set on the market!
Including all your necessary cleaning accessories, but also because the tub is made of polypropylene, it can't be recycled by most councils. To get around this green dilemma, they have included....A pack of seeds!
So when you're done with the tub you can grow some delicious treats!! 🥬🥬
Make sure to keep it fully eco with our Life Lycra or Techno Lycra, made from recycled Plastic waste - you can read more on this on our Blog: '5 Reasons We Think Plastic is the Future of Fashion'.

Grab a cuppa and comfy seat as we sit down (virtually!) with activist, presenter and artist Mary Mandefield to find out what makes her tick, the importance of using your platform and her love of all things bright, bold and beautiful...
I am beyond in love with my catsuit! I am a 36 D Size 6 (US) and it fits like a glove, it’s very comfortable and flattering, didn’t need a bra at all and made me feel super sexy. What especially won me over was the amazing customer service, I had ordered the wrong print and noticed after purchasing so I sent a few emails and social media messages to try to see how to fix it. I received help immediately, got one on one advice on fit and shipping date information as I needed it for a specific date. I am so grateful for the friendly attitude received which only made me fall in love with this company and the amazing women behind it even more. I will be purchasing more items
I already had this same catsuit in the silver/white combo, but I'd had my eye on this rainbow one because it's just such a fun outfit. It fits perfectly and I'm in love with the colors. Also works great with just the bottom half showing as leggings with a sweatshirt over it.
The fit is just right. I decided to go for the 8/10. I’m an 8, generally quite small and small chest and it’s fits perfectly. I didn’t know whether to size down or up (6/8 or 8/10) and I’m glad I chose this size.
Looks amazing, love the high leg and colours. Will buy in other patterns!
My diva leggings are a new staple for me. I love all my burnt soul pieces but as they are mainly cat suits and sparkly numbers these leggings are the perfect way to wear my burnt soup every day. The fit is ideal and super flattering! I can’t stop wearing them- perfect for dressing up or down and working-from-home comfort 👌🏻 Love the print- the pink shock is so well placed and gives them such a dynamic effect when seen in real life 😊
I love everything I buy from Burnt Soul and I’m absolutely in LOVE with all the recycled Lycras. They’re really well made and fit me like a glove. Feeling like a million dollar goddess. Thank you ladies xxx
I cannot recommend this catsuit enough. Shipping to the US was fast and it's gorgeous in person. I was a little nervous about trying one of the less-stretchy fabrics, but found the suit comfortable and breathable.
Great catsuit for going to a party or dinner (rather than a festival or rave).. Looks really classy and feels great, the longer sleeves make it better suited to winter/colder events. I love the hanging fabric and neckline which really makes your waste look slimmer! Only downside is I feel like I'm going to rip it when I'm taking it off but other than that it is a really well designed and made piece of clothing. Love you guys x
