Winter Bike Style: Ditch the Black!

Eye-catching colors, especially a variety of them, make an unforgettable outfit. It’s even better when your boldness spills over to your bike. And this time of year is the best to add a splash of color because of our desire to hibernate indoors and curl up on the couch with a cup of hot chocolate is on high. So this week, we’re making a change! We rounded up these 7 street style pictures to prove that with just a pop of color snowy winter days needn’t be dreary when riding your bike.

Sick of winter already? Unfortunately, there are more weeks of cold to come (according to the groundhog)—so your best bet is to jet to someplace warm and recharge, so that you can greet the rest of winter sans blues. But if you are not so lucky to jet away, you can willingly accept these last winter weeks and beat the winter blues with some upbeat and stylish blue accessories for you and your bike.  Blue_Bike_Accessoires

1. Tell us about BFF Bikes

BFF Bikes is a women focused bike shop so that means we have a much wider selection of women’s bikes, accessories, and apparel. Neither Vanessa or I come from the industry, but rather have spent a lot of time as the consumer and so we bring that perspective and created the kind of shop we wish existed. It has a bright, friendly, and up-beat atmosphere where everyone is welcome– including men. We love getting to know all our customers, whether they haven’t ridden a bike since they were a kid or if they are a long-time triathlete. We have a full service shop too and hold monthly basic fix-a-flat and maintenance classes as well as the occasional more advanced class. We also sponsor Chicago’s largest women’s only racing team and have open training rides. We’re very active in the cycling community and want to help it grow! (more…)
