3 Style Solutions for Bike Commuters

View all 8 Photos

You should bike to work. Biking is good for the environment and good for your waistline. Biking saves the cost of gas and the headache of parking. As more and more cities adapt to the needs of bicyclists, it becomes ever faster and safer, and many workplaces are not just accommodating, but are actively encouraging people to commute by bike.
And biking to work doesn’t have to mean transporting a change of clothes or risking your safety as a rider. Forward-thinking companies are making clothing that addresses the practical needs of the bike commuter with ease and style. Here are just a few of the options:

Ministry of Supply high-tech performance wear

Ministry of Supply has built their brand by using the latest in advanced technologies and NASA-inspired materials to create clothing that looks great in the workplace and can withstand the toughest workout at the same time. Your commute is no match for these fabrics, which remove excess heat and store it away from the skin, releasing it back when you cool off. The wind- and water-proof materials are self-ventilating, moisture-wicking, wrinkle-free, and infused with coffee grounds to absorb odor and keep you smelling fresh.
The staple of the Ministry of Supply catalog is the dress shirt, which looks sharp and crisp under nearly any circumstances, and takes you seamlessly from the saddle to a morning meeting. But they offer a whole range of high-performance wear, along with a groundbreaking “1-In, 1-Out” program that encourages clothing recycling and donation, and reimbursement for the cost of hemming their trousers so they are the perfect length on every body.

Betabrand Bike to Work Britches

These Bike to Work Britches offer comfort, style, and versatility, that emerges from the brand philosophy of designing products directly from the requests of customers. This close collaboration between the company and their consumer has yielded the Bike to Work line of clothing, and these britches fulfill every bike commuter’s wishlist. The subtle stretch in the fabric, the higher back rise, and reinforced gusset shape the pants for comfort without sacrificing style. The integrated U-lock loop, carabiner loops, and phone pocket keep all the essentials on hand. And the addition of reflective tape on the legs, a pocket triangle flag, and the reflective Betabrand heat transfer on the inside right leg mean that you’ll never have to choose safety over fashion.

Levi’s Commuter jeans

 

There are few fashion choices more basic and versatile than a pair of Levi’s, a staple of any wardrobe. The Commuter Slim Fit Jean packs a lot of bike-friendly features into that classic silhouette. Made of denim with extra stretch to accommodate movement, they are also coated with a water- and dirt-repellent finish. They include a slightly tapered leg and a higher rise in the back for a cycling posture. The addition of U-lock storage on the waistband and reflective tape on the inner cuffs make these a welcome addition to the cyclist’s wardrobe.
