BELLS AND WHISTLES
Bike accessories for stylish ladies
What are we up to this weekend? Well, first of all, thank you for asking. Secondly, we’re going for a leisurely May bike ride, of course!
In the spirit of keeping things more Zooey Deschanel than Lance Armstrong, here are the cute new bike accessories we’re planning to nab before we hit the pavement.
A Wooden Basket Macpherson Crate Co.’s bike baskets ($65) are handmade from hemlock in Vancouver and are just the right size to hold your CSA veggies or freshly cut daffodils (or, you know, your decidedly uncool Target haul).
A Stylish Helmet Safety first, fashion second: Sawako Furuno?s ladies' helmets have a chic, equestrian vibe. We?re partial to the ribbon green ($105), which is a little bit girly and a little bit rock star.
A Bell Precious? Maybe. Adorable? Definitely. Affix the Karen spring strike brass bell ($14) to your bike for instant retro style--and the ability to politely get pedestrians out of your effing way.
A Wine Holder If you’re heading to a pal’s for dinner (or just hoping to advertise your vino-cyclist obsession to the world), tote that Pinot Noir hands-free with the help of the bicycle wine rack ($40), which clips onto your bike’s frame.
A Tripod Think your biking journeys are interesting enough to share with the masses? Screw the BikePod ($25) to your handlebar, attach your phone or camera and record your entire ride. YouTube channel, here you come.
