Bike Friendly Hairstyles

Bike Friendly Hairstyles from Simply Bike

Alison from Eleanor’s NYC did a fantastic post for Simply Bike on seven bike friendly hairstyles. From low double knots and retro up-do’s to headscarves and turbans, this is making me wish I still had long hair underneath my helmet.

We all know how the feeling of stepping outside with your bicycle, dressed to the nines, with your hair done just so, and then coming to the realization that the only thing standing between you and all-day perfection is your bike helmet.

 

Family Bike

Family Bike New York

I love this (presumably) mother and daughter moment caught waiting for the L Train in Manhattan. It’s such an inspiration to see a family bike together, I imagine that time spent together feels a little more special than time in the car. Via A Cup of Jo.

 

Tomboy City Biking Style

City Biking

Personally, I think that lace up boots, skinny jeans, leather driving gloves and a long minimal trench are the perfect outfit for city biking. Let’s just hope that the bike in the pic is hers. Via Cardiff Cycle Chic.

 

Give Love Cycle Guilden Carryall

Give Love Cycle Guilden Carryall

 

I had the pleasure of meeting the lovely ladies behind Give Love Cycle during my stay in DC for the National Women’s Bicycling Forum. The girls couldn’t be sweeter and the bags couldn’t be sharper. I’m definitely adding this vegan leather carryall to my wishlist. $185 from Give Love Cycle.

The Guilden Large has the same great features as the Small, holding your helmet and purse essentials, PLUS a separate shoe compartment that allows you to ride in comfort and bring your wedges, work shoes or stilettos with you so you don’t have to sacrifice your style to ride.
