We rounded up 5 bike-friendly frocks to frolic in this summer to beat the heat. Each dress is roomy and movable but don’t worry there are no muumuu’s here. These summertime dresses also give you a greater range of motion than a more traditional style, which is always a plus when you’re bike-bound. Don’t forget our bike skirt garter clip for those summer breezes that can cause those unflattering Marilyn moments in the bike lane.

Have you guys seen this trick for riding a bike in a skirt? If you have a penny and a rubber band, you can prevent yourself from flashing people.

Crossbody bags are so perfect for summer biking when you don’t have a bike basket to store your belongings. You won’t have to worry about clasping onto a clutch or a purse slipping off your shoulder while you ride your bike. Crossbody bags ensure that you know where your belongings are at all times. While big bags are ideal for on foot, smaller cross-body bags are perfect for storing a phone and keys on nights out while you ride your bike. Here are nine of our favorite crossbody bags:
1. 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli Mini Messenger Bag 2. French Connection Colville Leather Crossbody Bag 3. French Connection Desert Croc Crossbody Bag 4. Po Campo Sky Stripe Roscoe Bag 5. JCrew Sophie Crossbody Bag 7. French Connection Harriet Textured Crossbody Bag 8. Modcloth Smooch Crossbody Bag 9. Poverty Flats Two Tone Crossbody

1. Tell us about Rolling Orange?
Rolling Orange Bikes was founded 4 year and a couple of weeks ago by Ad Hereijgers, a Dutchman that works as an urban planner in New York.

That’s how Rolling Orange started. Marc, my partner and I joined ROB 2 years ago. We want to bring our love, knowledge and bike culture to New York City. ROB was founded in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn, because the biking situation in Brooklyn is a little bit more advantageous than in the city, although things are still rapidly changing for the better there too.

I just came across the cutest bike inspired skirt on Etsy by Texas designer Angie Ramirez. I love Angie’s inspiration for this adorable skirt: “It’s a tribute to one of my oldest friends who’s always there when I need her. For 19 years, my Schwinn Collegiate has carried me through 16 years of marriage, 3 kids, 2 cities and countless miles. She taught me something my my previous mountain bike and BMX cruiser never could–that I can always ride in style! You and me, girl, we’re growin’ old together. Let’s do this…”
