I see London, I see France…

Riding a bike in a skirt is a skill I have not mastered. The photo was taken by my lovely friend Kim as we rode along the Rhône in her abroad home of Lyon.  Yes, I am trying to figure out how to ride so all of France does not get a free show.

After scouring the internet I’ve found the following tips:

1) Attach a weight to the hem of your skirt. (Ehow)

2) Put an elstic or garter (oh la la) around your thigh and safety pin your skirt to it. (The Diva’s Guide to Biking and Cycle & Style)

3) Snaps! Ok this is my idea and I haven’t tried it out yet. But if you have a skirt you’ll be wearing a lot while riding (say your favorite summer dress?), why not attach snaps to the front and back making a kid of culotte? I’ll let you know how it goes…

Any other ideas?

  1. I dont get this either. Just walking down the slope in my neighborhood causes my skirt to fly up. Love the snaps idea.
