When I first started working on this post, I was in the depths of an obsessive bicycle hunt… researching and pinning around the clock. But I’m proud to report that today I write as the glowing new owner of a shiny, semi-new set of wheels (Craigslist, for the win!). Chanel here, and if you’ve been to Austin you may know that we’re a super bike-friendly town. I don’t know if it’s the warm weather or the countless photos on the web of stylish ladies on their equally-stylish two-wheelers, but I’ve been dying to get on board with the trend and find the right bike for me. I finally scored this beauty in fire engine red (fancy, huh?) and it’s safe to say I’m in love. Of course, now everything I wear is considered it terms of ‘does this go with my bike?’, so I thought I’d put together a style board of one of my dream outfits for a day riding about town, complete with water bottle and biker shorts. Keep a look out for me in a bike lane near you, and to all you cyclists, I’d love any words of wisdom you have to share!
