Of course, cycling each day also keeps all our joints working and is easy aerobic exercise, as well as being green and cheap. Really, what is there not to like?
And now I can pick out cool togs that match my (neon green) bike and make a fashion statement as I pedal to the post office.
Note to self: black seems like a good basic look for my bike, with contrasting casual brights. Stay away from pastels.
My inspiration comes from the new book "Cycle Chic" by Mikel Colville-Anderson. Lots of pictures of sexy folks wearing interesting clothes as they cycle in cities around the world. Another note: riding in heels is more comfortable than walking in heels.
Mikel also has a blog filled with fun tidbits, (here's a post about cycling in skirts and dresses) but the book is the best way to get immersed in his vision. Happy riding everyone.
