Italian Cycle Chic [Padova]

Celebrate Cycle Chic

This week on MommaJam, we are talking about a new trend called Cycle Chic, the mixing of fashion and bike riding.   Think wheels and heels or baskets and bling bells.

The flagship Cycle Chic website, which put a name to the trend, launched in Copenhagen, Denmark, and now there are numerous sister sites around the U.S. and world.

Hear MommaJam on 95.9 WATD-FM discuss this new trend with the morning news team, Rob Hakala and Lisa Azizian.

Cycle Chic Accessories Popular – Bling Out Your Bike!

Brrring, bling!  You can get a Pink Flower Bling Bell from Cruiser Candy.com which sells fantastic bells and baskets for cruiser bikes.

Nantucket Bike Basket Company offers wicker cruiser baskets that come in all sorts of great colors and styles.  The company does not sell direct, so check online for stores near you.

Always wear a helmut, even though the totally chic lady from Italy (above) is not wearing one.   Helmuts are getting fashionable, and don’t have to be the typical racer bike helmut that points to the front and back.  The Bell Faction helmuts come a range of styles and colors suitable for trendy moms.  One of my favorites is the black and pink Diablo Drifter helmut from Bell.

You can find cruiser bikes for both women and men everywhere.  Check your local bike store or search online at places like Amazon.com.  I found a Pink Schwinn Lulu Rigid Cruiser bike at Target.com for $159.  This would make a great Mother’s Day present this season!

Green And Fun!

People are getting into green living and don’t want to drive to run errands.  For recreational bike riding, beach cruiser bikes are a lot of fun.  Look for bike paths near your home or in neighboring towns.

For listeners on the South Shore of Massachusetts, check out the bike trails around Wompatuck State Park in Hingham for a day of family riding.  The South Shore coast line is also a great place to bike ride for exercise and the scenic views.  Start in Hull and ride South through Cohassett to Scituate.

No matter what your destination, for an any kind extensive bike excursion, plan ahead with protein snacks, water, a map, and, of course, your helmut.
