Bicycle Lifestyle and Fashion

Posted by Administrator on 12/21/2012 to Motors Leather Fashion
Bikes and fashion may not seem to be two subjects that are related, but in fact they are in many ways. One of the most interesting ways this is happening is through style-themed bike rides. Several cities around the U.S. are hosting these rides in which people wear clothing, such as office wear or party wear, in a certain theme and ride their bikes together on a predetermined route.

What are style themed bike rides?

A style themed bike ride is a way that people are trying to get more people involved in casual bike riding and not just in racing or other forms of bike riding. Those being targeted include riders like commuters, people new to biking, and people who love trendy things. The want to bring the joy of riding a bike back into vogue by showing people that it is just as fun to ride a bike now as it was when you were a child.

For instance, some of the newer bike stores are even selling bikes in all sorts of new colors like pink, for instance, or green, as well as many sorts of accessories like bike caps in an equestrian style, panniers made of canvas or leather, etc. They want to get people out of the mentality that all bike riders wear spandex, biking shorts and cleats.

New Stylish Clothing for Bike Riding

Plus there are many places marketing different kinds of clothing that is fashionable and trendy, as well practical and functional. They are calling it Cycle Chic and the theme is to dress for where you are going instead of the bike ride itself. There are also bike fashion shows, along with bike tours and even bike tours with food and wine.

Due to this, many bikes and fashionable bike wear are showing up in magazines like Vogue or Glamour. People now want clothing and bike accessories that go with their own personality like some car owners do. In this way they can accessorize their bike with the practical products they need like baskets, lights, helmets, etc., along with making it more fun by buying these things in more trendy styles.

Greening of the Globe Also Plays Part in Biking Lifestyle

Plus, they want people to get out of thinking that you always have to carry a change of clothing with them if they want to use a bike to go to work or to a party or anywhere else. This is seen as part of the greening of the globe where people are trying to do things to help save the environment by doing things like riding bikes to save energy and cause less pollution.

The bottom line is that biking and fashion do mix and today’s biker is a lot different than bikers in the past. They care about both the bike’s function and its capacity for fun and so they want to dress the part no matter where it is they are headed.
