People watching is always great fun, and checking out what cyclists are wearing in the city is currently top of my mind, as I’m considering getting my own Oma bike. That’s why this NYT article on smart footwear style and the new bike sharing programme caught my attention.

Since the start of the NYC Citibike programme, retailers are seeing more interest in fashionable bike helmets. Over the past few years, bike accessories designers have also upped their game and they are coming out with more attractive and colourful options.

Biking in style is a popular subject on Pinterest too. Doesn’t browsing boards like “Bike Style“, and pins from people like “Jo Blue” and “Ony Peweh” make you want to take your wheels out for a spin right this second?
