Fashion Weekend Edition: Bike Date Dreamy

05 Apr

The things you do for love. Like wearing a button-down shirt and a sweater for a Friday night bike date, and swapping your singlespeed’s pedals so you can wear regular shoes instead cycling shoes. Or growing a beard just because your sweetie wonders out loud how it would look on you. That’s what love is all about.

Bike Date Portrait 1

About Fashion Friday: Inspired by a 2011 Bike to Work Day challenge sponsored by the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition, this series highlights the broad range of “dress for the destination” bicycling fashions.

    My partner, who like me also cycles as part of our lifestyle since we don’t have a car, doesn’t cycle in jeans. He finds that heat from his bum area and sweat, seems to wear out his pants faster. Which is expensive….

    So back to cycling tights or outdoor rain gear light pants. I know he would look just as a dapper as your partner…if he did. (My dearie also has narrow face, beard, etc.)

      Dick doesn’t do long or hard rides in jeans. Our bike dates are rarely more than 10 miles total for the evening.

      Has you partner looked at some of the cycling jeans available from Levis and others? They designed them to avoid putting seams in wear areas and they used material that wears better.

        Well, no. I don’t think that’s his spending priority: he wants to replace a well-used, now-semi functional bike with a new one for daily use. (He has 3 other bikes for other types of riding.), plus there’s helping out his son financially in setting up his own sandwich shop…

        He and I don’t have any qualms eating in clean cycling clothing in fancy restaurants….which we’ve done some times over the years in various cities/areas when we visit as tourists. I’m talking about places that serve dinners @ $45.00CAN per person or more.
