Just going through my blog roll and see that Dottie over at lgrab, who has provided us with more than one or two examples of cycle chic, has been hit by a car on her commute. She is apparently Ok - more details here

So here's one from happier times

I hope the cops get that low life mongrel and jump on him/her with hobnailed boots.

Glad to read she came through without any major injuries.

Fast forward is your friend :lol:

Some of what she had to say about training with her coach , crank selection, the crash, recovery, the mess her life had previously was interesting...

The scenery was quite pleasant :D

Given we are many pages into this thread, might be time to revisit Mikes comments in the OP:

Mikesbytes wrote:Cycle Chic is about style on the bike while running an errand down to the local shops or other short rides

If you are firing a shot at me, the picture is a comment from blogger Bikeyface giving a female perspective on "cycling chic" - exactly what the OP was about. It may be a bit too subtle for some. You could read more about it here.

There's chic, and then there's chick. I'll leave it up to you what you think the focus of this thread is.

A lot of people might say "whack job"...but all I got out of that video was someone who loved cycling and loved doing what he does..regardless of others

in a way I envy him...maybe not all the way, but in a little way :D

refreshing vid il padrone...thanks
