Accessories

I am not a chic cyclist. I don't say this to be self-deprecating. It's just a fact, and the truth is that while I so enjoy seeing blogs of stylish women cyclists, I don't really aspire to fit into this category. I have never been particularly good at being 'girly' and tend to always choose comfort over style in clothes. I am, however, someone who loves shoes (clunky, non-heeled ones), and cool eyeglasses, oh, and scarfs, and chunky necklaces. I like my accessories.

Last week I couldn't help but be delighted to come across this Yehuda Moon cartoon:

Yes, some days the commute has felt like a slog lately. No, we are not buying a new bike right now. However, we fully embrace the "add a new accessory to your rig" philosophy so check this out....







Mmmmmm, coffee. Can't say which I love more: my coffee or our bikes.


ROBOTS!!! I had so much fun choosing the design to change from the polka dots to these robots. We use these great wall decals that can be cleanly removed when we are ready to redecorate our cargo box. I did the change-over on Halloween Eve under the cover of darkness once the boys headed to bed so they got a cool Halloween morn surprise.

Yes, I do like my accessories....

Too cool for words, I can't wait to have a cargo bike so I can accessorize with stickers. Awesome!

Is that the Soma cupholder? I sooo wanted to buy one a few weeks ago, but it was kinda pricey and I need to wait until my income picks up.

Robots are so cool!

Nice--Robots and a cup holder...what more does one need? (my car has neither)

I like how your robots have hearts. I too am not a chic cyclist, I do much better wear clothes suited for bike comfort!

i keep meaning to say- I love the robots. I was thinking of them today actually.

And cup holders rule!

Fantastic! My friends have the same ones at their apartment.

My mom dressed me in only my brother's hand-me-downs when I was smaller. So now I've got a whole lost childhood thing happening:)

I love the robots! To me, it's the fun things like cool stickers and other fun accessories that make someone a chic cyclist!

I've coveted those coffee holders, but honestly the coffee maker at my office makes better coffee than the maker at home, so lately I've just been coming to work a bit sleepy and getting my caffeine at my desk!
