Goodordering have been a Bikelands favourite ever since we lay our eyes on them. The stylish, innovative bags that "never go out of style".
Who are they?
First of all, when we say they, we mean she. Jacqui Ma. An extremely talented handbag designer and committed commuter. With years of experience in the design industry Ma put her expertise to designing stylish and practical bike friendly bags.
Where does GO come from?
Hackney, East London. The bags are inspired by retro Japanese school and travel bags from the 70s and 80s.
"The brand name ‘Goodordering’ comes from the joy and satisfaction of ordering well at a restaurant. “Our family often went out for meals together and after a very satisfying meal, we would all call out ‘Good ordering!’ to mum. This brand incorporates all the values of family get-togethers and those captured moments of happiness." At Bikelands, we just love this ethos as family and family meals together is an important part of our lives too.
Why we love them...
When selecting products for you guys we take all the care and effort to select the best, more thoughtful and innovative products out there. Not only do we absolutely love the retro styles of Goodordering but we love that they take value and pride in the products they create which means great sturdy design.
Goodordering started up when Jacqui Ma discovered the lack of stylish bags for commuters, and saw it fit to do something about it - while on maternity leave!
Jacqui Ma keeps the retro styling in mind and combines it with modernity. The bags are made with gadgets and technology in mind.
Goodordering have a range of bags to suit you. There's various panniers and shoppers depending on your preferred attachment; handlebar bags (that can also work as a pannier and a fits perfectly as a pushchair bag too) mobile phone and saddle bags. So something for everyone in cool colours. Take a look here...

The Bikelands story was born out of a love for cycling, a penchant for style and an appreciation for a sustainable transport solution. Cycling is one of life's constants, since my first wobbly 'pedallings' along our street, getting to school, Uni and more recently around the streets of London. A holiday in La Rochelle, France was the inspirational straw that conceived The Bikelands Story.
Bikelands is nestled among all manner of cycle paths and trails and situated within an awesome triumvirate of Devonshire countryside. Whether it is the sandy beaches of Exmouth, the Gateway to The Jurassic Coastline, the ever changing beauty that is the Exe Estuary, or East Devon's hinterland of Woodbury Common, you'll feel as though you've gone to cycling heaven...Those That Ride Discover!
Cycling should be all inclusive, young or old and all those in between. We should also be doing it more often; leaving the car at home when we pop to the shops, even if it's only once a week. For family Bikelands it's a fun, cheap and healthy family day out. The kids always remember these days. But especially it's for you! To blow those cobwebs away and revive the soul.
At Bikelands we see ourselves more of a bicycle emporium rather than a straightforward shop. We’re more leisure than Lycra and more picnic than pain. We have a perfect range of elegant bicycles for town and gentle riding, for the ladies and gentlemen amongst us. Created by the London based team at Bobbin Bicycles.
Fixed wheel and single speed cycling is quickly growing in popularity. From it's underground cult followers of track enthusiasts and couriers. It's now spreading countrywide. If you're thinking about doing it, come and see us! I'm sure you have some questions. We have a great range of bikes from Tokyo Bike, Mango and Foffa. For those already indoctrinated, we know you love to customise. Choose from our wide range of components and accessories, including Brick Lane Bikes.
With our beautiful beaches only minutes away, we had to make sure we offered a classic cruiser too, Electra fits perfectly. Go on...Live the dream!
We think bicycles should have personality too. Whether it's a beautiful leather saddle, pannier, rack, bell or basket, you'll find what you need at Bikelands. Choose from Brooks, Basil and Linus, amongst other less known gems. We also have a wide range of stylish accessories and unusual finds, including Bern helmets, Bookman lights and Oopsmark hand crafted leather wine rack. In fact, we're continuously seeking out quirky, stylish and of course practical cycling accessories so remember to keep popping back.
Since opening Bikelands we are lucky enough to have become part of the community here in Exmouth. Many of our customers have become friends. We get many repeat visitors whether that's the 'locals' popping in for a chat, to see whats new in or returning holiday makers who want a repeat of the wonderful day out they had on our bikes the previous year. So don't be shy, pop in for a chat ... Browse, Borrow, Buy...
Happy cycling, Rebecca, Stuart & Family Bikelands x
