Cycle Chic Through the Ages

You may have noticed something over the past couple of years…bicycling is hot! With the exception of GM’s little snafu a few weeks ago, bicycles are generally portrayed as a hip, smart and sexy choice in television and print ads. As I page through magazines (yeah, I read women’s magazines), I routinely see several bikes per issue…as a prop in the background or as a conveyance for a stunningly-attired model. Meanwhile, the Internet is packed with bicycle-chic sites and a new one pops up nearly every day.

But to us, cycling has ALWAYS been chic, and a recent photo essay on Ecosalon gives you a look into cycling’s stylish past. It’s worth a visit over there just to see how styles have changed but the bicycle remains one sexy beast on its own.

    I’ve noted, with some amusement, that this post has been up for a couple of days and there have been no comments.

    I guess, then, it goes without saying that bicycling and pretty women just naturally go together?

    Google “bicycle pinups” and see if you don’t agree.

    I just couldn’t figure out how to comment without sounding like a complete lecher!
