They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, and indeed it is when the execution is top-notch. I was thrilled to see that Pep, a local blogger and hard-core roadie, dedicated a recent post to her trendy folding bike and her personal bike style à la Fashion Friday. I love the way she pulls together classic pieces in neutral colors with a chunky knit scarf, and how the ensemble highlights her silvery mane and bright white little bike.
Every morning, Pep rides her STRiDA bike to a shuttle stop where she quickly folds it up and hops on one of her company’s fleet of private buses. It’s quick and easy, much better than driving or riding the whole way.
Folding bikes are hot these days because they solve “last mile” issues for suburban transit users as well as “no space” issues for urban dwellers. How hot? Well, my most popular post of all time is by far a review of the Bromptons Dick and I rented in London. If you haven’t tried a foldie, you have no idea how amazing they are.
For more details on Pep’s STRiDA bike and her stories of riding the backroads of the San Francisco Bay Area, check out her About Pep blog. Her photo-driven tutorial on descending is worth the visit alone.
