meligrosa,

Any suggestions as to what constitutes, "crisp" on men (on bikes)? For those of us lacking an innate sense of style. :)

Oh your slideshow of women in skirts is just gorgeous and inspirational! (Plus, I'm drooling over those eurochic bikes) I fell just a teeny bit in love with you when you said "wifealisciousness" on one of your photo comments. I showed my husband-maybe he'll say that to me now ;).

About riding in skirts...it's delighfully fun, feels incredibly feminine, and the mild challenge and mystery of it (since you are throwing all care to the wind) makes it even more alluring.

I am an American woman who has been riding in skirts for a young age (I grew up in Davis CA you see.) I have a DIY skirt guard on my bike I piked up from this indestructables tutorial: &-Easy-Bicycle-Skirt-Guards/

Also, to remove some of they mystery of how all those European woman avoid skits in wheels and the like, most of their bikes come with skirt guards.

Americans tend to go for sporty bikes not euro style bikes and there is a huge difference. Euro bikes are harder to find and pricey,(but lovely!) So, mod your bike ladies! It's cheep and easy! =)

I do many of the mentioned things, plus, I will wear shorts under a skirt if I really want to avoid flashing. American apparel has thin bike shots in several colors for cheep. Bloomers or tap pants are also classy cute ways to go if you are afraid of flashing.

You can also, with long skirts, turn them in to pantaloons with a large safety pin by pulling the back hem up to your front.

Safety? I have never had issue. Mussed skirts or dresses? I messed up one dress when I was 14 and have been careful ever since about tying up longer skirts until I found the DIY skirt guard. Love.

Hello. I'm Jessica and I live in windy Norwich in the UK. I use my bike for both pleasure and for work...when it's not wet!, and I nearly always wear a skirt when I ride. Usually it's either a knee length or longer flared black skirt (for work) or a shorter flippy style skirt (weekends). To avoid those embarrasing "knickers" moments I wear a slip under my skirt which usually works. I would recommend it to any lady who wants to maintain her modesty whilst riding a bike in a floaty skirt.

Thanks
Jess
