My bike is has become a huge part of my life, if you couldn't tell. It has, without a doubt, changed my life. It's my favorite possession - even ranked above my camera which is saying a lot. I try to find at least a little bit of time everyday to ride. It's what makes me the happiest.
Last summer I shared my typical bike outfit. That was Kaylah who had only been on a bike for a few months, and was still figuring out what I liked to bike in. I was having issues with being comfortable on my saddle, and found that things without a seam in the crotch made all the difference. Cue me buying a million pairs of comfy yoga shorts and pants. They got me through but now I'm trying to expand what I wear on my bike. I could (and have) read a million articles about being stylish while biking but I need to figure out what's comfortable for me.
Here's where "bike style" comes in. These posts will be just like my outfit posts except they'll be things I'm wearing on bike rides. It's a way to challenge myself to wear something other than yoga pants and a cozy black tee. I love that, it does look cute, and I'm sure you'll end up seeing me wearing it at some point but I want to expand so that doesn't end up being what I wear all summer long.
Currently I'm just trying to get back into biking in jeans. It caused me so much pain over the summer that I swore them off completely. Now I'm figuring out it all depends on the jeans and how big the seam is. These jeans are super cozy to ride in the only downside is they're turning blue saddle. Hah! Luckily it's nothing some bleach wipes can't fix!
