Cycling, The Great Gatsby style

Oh my! How beautiful is this romantic vintage-styled shot of a couple in Central Park as they draped themselves elegantly onto the bike.  We particularly love the girl’s floral-garlanded hair, bright red lipstick matching the red bike frame, and those looooong legs ending in dangling cream heels.

You can see the more shots from the editorial ‘A Short Story’ here and here. Oh the glamour of The Great Gatsby.

Girls guide to riding in a skirt

Over at City Girl Rides they have posted up some easy tips for riding in a skirt.

some things to keep in mind is that short skirts, tight skirts, or flowing skirts tend to ride up the thighs when pedalling, and when a gust of wind sweeps by it can really be a show stopper.

Umm yeah. I’m pretty sure some passing motorists have seen more than they wanted to see when I’m riding a bike. I’ve discovered that jersey wrap dresses, while great for the office, are possibly the worst design for riding a bike (other than a chiffon evening number I wore once and tore holes in the hem).

The tips are common sense mostly and will only add to your ladylike demeanour. So don’t feel that you can’t ride a bike in a skirt!
