Bobbin Birdie $650 bobbinbicycles.co.uk
This bicycle captures the essence of urban city cruising. Stylish, comfortable and carefree. And think how amazing you’ll look if you ride it while wearing your brand new Eva Franco Spring Dress.
Transporter Bag $120 dar-ge-los.com
One part shoulder tote, one part backpack, this waxed cotton canvas (i.e. water resistant) bag can go with you anywhere. And trust me, once you’ve given it a try, it will go with you everywhere.
Amanda Dress In Lemon Drop $395 evafranco.com
Why is this dress perfect for spring cycling? Oh, let me count the ways. 1) The bright sunny yellow color. 2) The full pleated skirt – excellent for twirling and riding. 3) The classic V neckline. It’s the quintessential “brighten your day and everyone else’s day around you” dress.
Bike Klutch $75 nonavarnado.com
This sleek clutch has all the practicality of a fanny pack (and style issues aside, they are practical) combined with the elegance of an evening bag. I love that the clutch can easily be either.
Federico Red Brass Bell $15 publicbikes.com
They say the journey is more important than the destination and I suspect you’ll be passing many people along the way. So let them know you’re there with this colorful brass bell.
Dose Jacket $275 nau.com
Spring cycling calls for a lightweight jacket that looks sleek, but can be shed and packed into a pannier as well. The Dose jacket inhabits both the fashionable and the functional worlds and moves effortlessly between the two.
