I recently competed in the Wellington chapter of Frocks on Bikes “Cycle Chic in the Street” competition.
Believe it or not, I won 3rd place is the “Super Chic” category.
Here is a dark fuzzy photo of me looking super chic with the other contestants.
And another one of me posing with my bike and my prize (a bunch of fabulous Antipodes products!)
While I was there I got to speaking with a lovely lady who designs and makes bicycle clothing and accessories for ladies. It’s called “Cyclette” and her stuff is so fucking rad!
It’s described as “Sexy girls’ cycle wear for on and off your bike. All designs feature high visibility reflective details. Mobile phone pockets that work as you roll. Practical styles to allow you ultimate mobility.”
She was wearing this totally awesome cape:
I WANT ONE!
There are also bodysuits (‽) and tons of other awesome stuff.
She is now living in Wellington and trying to get her business going here. I had a chance to examine the lovely cape the designer was wearing, and it was so well made and neatly finished I felt like the laziest seamstress in the world.
I also love this handlebar bag:
So, check out her website and all her awesome cycling accessories and buy some.
