Arrive in style

/

 

If your trip is less than 5 miles, you can typically wear your everyday clothes for your ride.

 

Clothing

  • Choose thin natural fabrics and sweat-wicking polyester fabrics for staying cool and looking nice.
  • Consider an upright riding bike with a chain guard, skirt guard and fenders to keep your clothes free of debris.
  • Use an ankle strap to keep your pants cuff clean.
  • Store professional clothes at your office to wear once you arrive.

Hair

  • Consider a simple hairstyle that is less affected by helmets.
  • Wear a hat or bandanna under your helmet to reduce marks from helmets and the effects of wind on your hair.
