SkirtBike

How amazing is the red Pashley Britania bike in these photos? Unfortunately, it’s not mine, but I did have the pleasure to borrow it for an afternoon and take some photos. I could even wear one of my usual get ups - the low frame and large front wicker basket are designed to give you the freedom to wear skirts and dresses and carry your usual bag and everything else you feel like having with you. A polka-dots dress seemed like the obvious choice for my red bicycle!

I’m also taking this opportunity to talk about a lovely event here in Bucharest called SkirtBike which aims to celebrate the independence and empowerment that cycling can provide to all women and to encourage those who don’t already cycle. SkirtBike is a fun, colorful and friendly women bicycle ride, where the skirt or the dress is the proper outfit (the next one is coming really soon – on July 6th).


Mie vara imi vin tot felul de idei. Acum ma gandesc cat de frumos ar fi sa merg la slujba in fiecare dimineata cu bicicleta in loc de metrou sau autobuz. Sigur, ar dura putin mai mult (poate la fel avand in vedere ca mereu pierd metroul), dar as respira aer cat de cat proaspat si as face si 40 de minute de miscare. Am mai avut ganduri asemanatoare si alta data iar de la intalnirea cu Roxana la Digital Divas, cand mi-a povestit de Skirt Bike, am inceput sa ma gandesc din nou la chestia asta. Doar bicicleta imi lipseste!

Nu si in aceste fotografii insa, pentru care am imprumutat una absolut superba de la La Vita e Velo – modelul se numeste Pashley Britania si este o bicicleta clasica englezeasca bazata pe popularul model Princess al brandului Pashley. Pozele sunt facute de Costin si cartile din cos pe care tocmai i le inapoiam dupa ce le citisem au servit ca recuzita neintentionata, dar destul de potrivita.  

Asa cumva ziceam, totul a pornit de la intalnirea cu Roxana si apoi cu Mihaela si Oana care organizeaza Skirt Bike, o initiativa despre care merita sa va povestesc putin. SkirtBike este un eveniment care celebreaza independenta si sentimental de eliberare pe care mersul pe bicicleta il ofera tuturor femeilor si doreste sa le motiveze pe cele care inca nu pedaleaza sa o faca in viitor. Urmatorea editie Skirt Bike va avea loc in cateva zile, pe 6 iulie, in București începând cu ora 15.00.  Plimbarea in care fustele si rochiile pe bicicleta sunt, nu doar perfect acceptabile, ci si incurajate, va porni de la  Palatul Copiilor (Bd. Tineretului, nr 60), ora 16.00, pe următorul traseu: Bd. Tineretului- Bd. Dimitrie Cantemir-PiațaUnirii-Piața Universității-Piața Romană–Piața Victoriei–Bd. Aviatorilor–Parcul Herăstrău–Roaba de Cultură (intrarea Pescăruș). Si mai multe detalii gasiti pe blogul SkirtBike, dar si pe pagina lor de facebook!

That is one cool bike! And that sounds like a great event, I'd love to be able to ride in heels though the place I live in people take bike riding too seriously and not a chic as the Europeans do!
