Best Dressed Bike Commuter Contest

29 Apr

Think you’re the best dressed bike commuter around? I’ve got word that there is a fancy lady in Richmond who might be the contender for that title so I wanted to open up the arena to see who else thinks their bicycle style surpasses that of the average city dweller.

 

"Vintage Bike Man" One of my long time favorite photos from the Sartorialist blog

Send pictures of yourself commuting in a stylish way to moregardenslesscars [at] gmail.com. I’ll publish 1-3 entries per person and activate a Voting Poll to determine who gets the most votes.

Why?

People are passionate and excited about their bicycles. I’ve been collecting bicycle love stories from people around the country but some people have insisted that they’re not writers, but want to contribute in another way to demonstrate their connection to the suavest, most sustainable, most economical, most healthy and most efficient form of human transportation.

Some helpful resources for inspiration are:

Copenhagen Chic

Sartorialist

Let’s Go Ride a Bike

Biking in Heels

Chic Cyclists

Gwadzilla

Let me know if you have a blog you’d like to be listed as inspiration or want to recommend one. Thanks!
