Wondering what to wear on your bike ride today?
I’ve written before about riding bikes in skirts and dresses.
Though I’m not a fan of cupcake Rides and Heels on Wheels rides (see also Bike ride, pants optional!) I like the idea of tweed rides. Here are some photos of Windsor’s tweed ride. Rumour has it that London, Ontario is having one this September. Stay tuned!
If you want to go all out retro, you can consult the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Here’s some dapper riding clothes for women from the 1890s.
A couple of days ago we shared some of their newly released bike images too.

Love the cycling stockings! Smartwool clearly was doing their homework; I have several pairs of high/over-the-knee colorfully patterned socks to wear cycling. Glad to know this practice is historically based… 🙂
Yes, I love them too.
Love them although… not for cycling!
Yeah, me too. But not for cycling is right.
