This is not necessarily about being chic or into fashionable things or trends, but if you want, it can be.- - - -
It is about being yourself, what works for you and what makes you comfortable, confident and happy to ride your bike!
Time for the gentlemen on wheels to take over this week.
I captured this fast guy (don't all bright colors just make you go faster?!) on an overcast mid-December morning.
Why this works: The yellows make him very visible, and they add sunshine when the weather lacks it. Plus any guy wearing tights and shorts seems pretty practical, and layer-savvy. Some sporty outfits out there are good, I like my athletes.
Where: This is on Polk and Broadway, early morning.

Why this works: In the winter, the weather can be fabulous+sunny for a lunchtime ride, to a foggy windy afternoon. A warm coat and a scarf are never a bad decision. Simple and functional is timeless. And his non-chalantness comes naturally =)
Where: This is on Hayes and Divisadero

I forgot to ask this cute fellow his name, but if you know him, let him know he is interwebs-famous.
Why this works: Coat, backpack and scarf -- check. You are well rounded with a super smile! I also think you can always pair dark denim very nicely for work and for after hours, here he goes a bit monotone and it is office-casual ready.
Where: This is also on Hayes and Divisadero
These two shots were obviously taken before we had our 'heatwave' here in San Francisco (Mostly mid-60°s this week) but don't be fooled, the fog can strike anytime!
