The bicycle they have in store looks a lot like this…
Isn’t it romantic? The basket on the front, the tan leather seat, the chain cover, the spokes and the style of it, just so old school and it even has a light on the front! I’m going to have to save for quite a while to buy this baby and so it remains on my wish list until then. I have been going through my collected images and have discovered all these gorgeous shots of girls on bicycles, I can’t believe how many I have collected… and so I have to share them with you because they are just so lovely. I don’t know why I have such a fascination with girls on bicycles, Freud would have an answer I’m sure, but anyway, here they are, enjoy!
So this is how they do it in Paris, oui? Doesn’t she look too cool? Love the boots, très impressive.
And this is how they do it in New York. Am loving her ensemble, the jacket and dress and she’s even wearing her heels while riding!
A lot of Europeans have this innate sense of style – no matter what they are doing, riding their bike, walking their dog, taking out the trash… I mean, this girl could be on her way to who knows where, but she is rocking her simple biker chic, non?
Biker chic is not about lycra and leather. Not any more. It seems to me that you wear whatever you want, your bike is your chariot of green-living to get you from a to b. No one has room to carry a change of clothes so they just put on what they are going to wear for the day because no one wants to look like they are in training for the tour de France?
Although, I would like to see one of these girls peddling their bike while wearing sky-high Louboutins!
Ciao for now,
