We’ve recently become supporters of a new cycle to work scheme. The Green Commute Initiative is a Social Enterprise with a vision to get commuters out of cars and onto bikes, with the benefits of improving an individual’s health and well-being, as well as reducing the environmental impact of pollution and congestion from cars. For […]

The Circe Helios is well known for its easy transportability, but how about packing a tandem into two 70 x 60 x 20cm bags, each weighing just under 10kg? Even better, and saving packing and re-construction time, the rear wheel and transmission can stay in place. Every tandem couple has different requirements, with some preferring […]

Inspirational touring cyclist and author, Josie Dew, has been using a Circe Helios for transporting her family, but with a growing family and having to regularly propel an increasingly heavy load, she’s upgraded the family transport to a Shimano STEPS assisted Circe Helios Triplet. It’s used every day for the school run and general transportation […]

    It amazed us to realise that it’s 10 years since we introduced the Circe Helios, so we thought it appropriate to mark that milestone with a celebration to which all our customers and any interested parties are invited. An outdoor event seemed appropriate and we were fortunate to get access to some peaceful, secluded fields in the […]

There are many wonderful things about tandem riding, but a big considerations is how to transport, or travel with, the extra length, size and weight that is essential to the design of a tandem. An essential element of our design brief for the Helios was a compact tandem that, amongst other things, would be easy […]

A stand-out, and unique, feature of Circe tandems is the speed with which they can be converted into a Cargo bike. Both the Helios and Morpheus use the same Cargo Rack which can be combined with the Cargo Extension to form a large, flat platform rack for every day transportation needs. Whether for the family shop, a […]

We don’t recommend flying with any bike in a soft bag, but frequent flyer, Aidan Prior, who regularly uses soft bags for transporting his bikes, has found an interesting way of flying with his Helios in a surfboard bag. By removing the front wheel, seat posts and pedals, his Helios fits into the Komunity Project […]

“It won’t be a stylish marriage, I can’t afford a carriage, But you’d look sweet upon the seat Of a bicycle made for two.” And  what better and more fun way to get to and from a wedding than on a tandem bicycle! Not only as transportation, though. Tandems are becoming increasingly popular as wedding […]

Transporting a tandem bicycle by car is always difficult and, even though the compact size and light weight of the Helios make it very easy to fit inside most cars, some families need the inside of the car for passengers and other luggage, making roof carriage the only option. The Thule Pro ride 591 and […]

Richard and Anne Lewis regularly travel with their tandem and were strong advocates of our designing a separable version of the Helios. This article is about how they fold their separable Aurora tandem into two suitcases for flying. There are various one and two case, or bag, solutions that people use for transporting the Helios, […]

To cycle 430 miles from Peterborough to Paris is an impressive ride by any standards, even more so when suffering from the devastating neurological illness, Parkinson’s disease. Marjorie Abbott has been a sufferer for 12 years, but is passionate about the importance of regular exercise in controlling or delaying the development of symptoms. To meet […]

We’ve been using the Helios since our youngest was 6 months, and have done many happy miles on it. Exploring our local area, blackberry picking, shopping or taking the kids to parties! It has also accompanied us on several holidays, as it fits on our Thule roof rack. I hold it responsible for teaching my […]

It’s a long hot summer Sunday and what better way of spending it than a cycle ride out into the country for a leisurely lunch with family and friends. Of course, particularly where kids are concerned, it helps to have the right bikes – in this case, the Circe Morpheus and Circe Helios!

Carrying very young babies on traditional bike seats is not recommended, however, car seats like the ‘Maxi Cosi’ provide suitable support to a baby’s neck. By attaching the Steco ‘Baby Mee‘, which is designed to hold the Maxi Cosi, to the dedicated Cargo rack of the Morpheus (or Helios), a baby can become part of a […]

Increasingly, in our congested cities, people are using bikes for utility transportation. There are the obvious advantages of saved time and money, the very personal benefit of health and well being, but also the environmental benefit to us all. The Helios has proven particularly popular for transporting 1 or 2 children, either in two child […]

Contrarily, with advances in medicine and diet, and the consequent increases in longevity, dementia, or the diminution of mental faculties, has seen rapid growth, with nearly 1 million sufferers in the UK. At present, there is no cure, but research indicates that exercise can delay the onset and on-going decline of the brain and its […]
