All dressed up, somewhere to go

Patrick and Holly started a Vélocouture group on Flickr where cyclists can showcase their stylish and functional outfits for cycling. From his post describing this project:
"There’s a widespread impression among people in the United States, cyclists and non-cyclists alike, that you have to wear some really strange clothing in order to operate a bicycle. I do understand the need for cycling-specific clothes for long or multi-day rides. However, if you’re a transportational cyclist, most of your rides are not like that. You can usually pedal away wearing normal, or even fashionable, clothing, with just a few key adjustments to how you normally dress."

Patrick goes on to give some some practical advice on stylish clothing for cycling. Read the article and view the Flickr group for much much more!

The funny thing is, most of the clothes are a bit strange, just not in the fluorescent lycra sort of way. Maybe I'll start wearing a tie on my commute, but taking it off for the office...
