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.
