The only thing better than eating a delicious meal is doing it outdoors in the company of friends. That’s our official perspective, anyway. If you like the way we think, we think you’ll like our Picnic Lovers’ Collection: these bike accessories were hand-picked to help you picnic perfect this season.
Friday May 17th, was National Bike to Work Day in the United States. In honor of the day, Transportation Alternatives hosted a Bike To Work Home Party under the Archway of the Brooklyn Bridge in DUMBO.
Maria of Po Campo and Alison of Eleanor’s joined stylish biking forces and hosted a Braid Bar to aid riders with helmet head. Two recent grads from Aveda, Marifer and Bridget, formed the glam team and braided over 60 riders hair so they looked stylish on and off the bicycle. Stylish riders got to choose from 5 different braid styles which ranged from fishtails to milk maid braids.
Biking and shorts: the ultimate duo. But happily for us, that doesn’t always have to mean “bike shorts.” As with most bike accessories, bike shorts have been designed to death, and the result is that the majority of bike shorts on the market for ladies are tight, spandex numbers with lots of sports branding or weird zipper pockets in places you didn’t know were there until suiting up in those practical-but-not-pretty biking britches.
We think that any pair of shorts can become cycling shorts - all you have to do is hop on your bike and hit the streets. So what’re we excited to slip into this season? Check out our short list of 5 cute shorts to cycle in this season.

1. Broken-In Boyfriend Chino Short by J. Crew: You’ll be well-served to keep a pair of these on hand all summer. These soft chino shorts are a great length for a more casual office when paired with a cute button-up and cardigan, and the burgundy is a new-neutral that will work well with a ton of summer tops.Continue Reading
We love the idea of a monochromatic color palette, especially when it’s as light and airy is this look in all white. Make this bold choice this season, but don’t forget your bike! We have a whole array of white bike accessories to whiten up your ride.

We typically admire just about anything Kate Hudson does or wears… we’re really on the same page about a lot of things. Especially when it comes to bike style.
We’re crushin’ on her vintage Schwinn (à la Eleanor’s founder, Alison Lucien’s ride) and her elegant grey duds. For some chic looks in grey, we think Kate would be on board with this great (non-sporting) cycling apparel from Iva Jean.

Now that our winter gloves have completely gone from our minds, we’ll turn our attention to our nails. Even if you aren’t exactly the mani-pedi type, it’s good to freshen up winter-worn hands by making an appointment at your favorite nail salon or giving your nails some TLC at home (we’re convinced that Martha literally knows everything). If you’re in the market for some new spring shades, here’s a quick rundown of our favorite hues for chic hands this spring.

In honor of the League of American Bicyclists’ National Bike Month (which is this month, by the way!) we wanted to put together some of our favorite commute-by-bike items in time for Bike to Work Day, happening this Friday.
Check out these must-haves that’ll have you cycling to work in style in no time:

Slip into this ultra durable, moisture controlling pencil skirt before heading to work; a rear zipper reveals extra fabric that makes biking a breeze, and then you can zip ‘er back up once you’ve arrived to maintain that crisp, tailored look. It’s even got a hidden pocket for keys, credit cards, or a tube of power lipstick.Continue Reading
