The term ‘cycle chic’ was coined by Mikael Colville-Andersen the creator of Copenhagen Cycle Chic and refers to the lifestyle cyclists who wear their regular clothes and hop on a bike to get around. Unfortunately Australians can’t “cycle chic” as the definition strictly stipulates that helmets must not be worn. Nonetheless, surely we can do our best to get into the joyous benefits of lifestyle cycling which is why I started snapping stylish cyclists on the go around town myself but then felt funny about posting images of folks who weren’t aware they were being snapped. That said, there was this one time when I was locking up my bike when I noticed a woman photographing me. Thinking she’d come over and say hi, I finished what I was doing but when I looked up – she was gone! So in today’s BusiChic post, I’m sharing some of my shots of cycling chicks (which I considered submitting to Treadlie, Melbourne’s own cycle awesome publication – check it out!) and a Contemporary Business Wear/creative outfit I wear to work when the Autumn weather is fine…
