You’ve probably heard about how in the great European bike cities like Amsterdam people wear “regular clothes” when they ride. I’m not sure what that means to most people; but to me it meant they didn’t were lycra or other special “cycling clothes.” What I didn’t realize is that their clothes are far from “regular”. They ride in some of the most stylish outfits I’ve ever seen on two wheels. People in Copenhagen dressed very well; but the attire in Amsterdam has more panache. I found the styles really amazing. And to see them on people riding bikes was frankly jaw-dropping.
