Ladies: are you style-conscious on your bike? Kudos to my step-mom, Sara Walker, for finding these fabulous cycling accessories! Who says you have to sacrifice style while cycling?! These fun colored accessories will certainly turn some heads this summer. Though they are mostly through NYC based companies, all of these products are available online. I think the Montague Crosstown would look great with the green Pop Up Basket, don’t you! I, personally, want those yellow heels!
“Flip the Pinger” is a great alternative to flipping something else. Stray pedestrians, angry drivers, and over-zealous bus drivers can really cause some issues. Try not to lose your head though. Keep your hands on your handlebars and give this little bell a try. This cute and effective neon bell is available for $10 from a new bike shop in NYC, Adeline Adeline.
Are you more of the flashy type? Strut your stuff in this light-up vest, made in Brooklyn by cyclist Audrey Robinson and brought to you by Dargelos. It’s biodegradable and compostable, hand stitched, and make from 3M reflective material by hand. For a mere $80 you can guarantee your safety while really looking cool.
This pop-up metal basket from Mioculture turns any bike into a commuting machine. Made to fit nearly every bike in the front or back, this pop-up basket is built for utility AND style. Pictured here if my favorite of the available colors-bright green-but this basket is also available in black, white, and red. For $75, optimize your bike to fit all your needs and make all your friends jealous with this fun and useful accessory.
Now, for my favorite fun-colored accessory! Remember Minnie Mouse’s yellow pumps? Now available for humans! Any cyclists! These mustard-yellow heels are perfect for riding around the city or to and from work. These Camper Peep-toe Heels are the perfect accessory for the style-minded woman. Available in European sizes 36-40 and brought to you by Camper, these shoes will be a hot sell-especially since they’re on sale right now for $127.50!
Ride Safe and Ride Pretty!
