Enjoy the Ride… {Free Bicycle Images to Use with the Silhouette}

I had planned on painting my rusty, sweet old bicycle this summer, but I still haven’t gotten around to doing it yet, but I did paint another old white bicycle, but this one is on a wooden sign.
I’ll show you how easy it is to create one of your own, with bunches of bicycle images to choose from.

First, go to Dafont.com and download the Sepeda font HERE.
Every letter of the alphabet is represented by a different kind of bicycle image, like this –

Bicycle Font

Once you’ve downloaded it, simply type the whole alphabet (upper and lower case are both the same) in Word, then decide which image you like the best and delete the rest.  I enlarge the one I pick and print out that image, then I scan it and save it to my computer.

Once that’s done, just open up the image in your Silhouette program, select the “Trace” function so the Silhouette will create your cutting lines, then add whatever words you want.

I think this would make a great gift for the biking enthusiast, personalized with the recipient’s name on it.
I painted my sign on the seat from a broken old chair (because I brought home 4 of them from a yard sale).  I painted mine with homemade chalk-style paint, in the addictive Dover Gray color, and distressed it once I had the image finished.

Enjoy the Ride!
