Timeless Cycle Chic

Hi, Chelsea from Frolic! here! I am so glad to be guest blogging on Let’s Go Ride a Bike today! It’s one of my daily reads. I recently came across these old photos and I think the girls and their bicycles are super chic!

Photos from Flickr: 1, 2, + here.

    These are terrific! I love the easy-breezy style shown by all three young women, and I especially like the almost cross-dressing style of the middle one (it must have been quite noteworthy in its time!).

    Thanks for finding and posting these.

    I’ve been having fun reading this blog and many of the other bike blogs out yonder. Although I’m not a girl and I don’t have a cute bike ,mine is early 80s Nikishi with mix and matched pieces and on the verge of falling apart it seems, I have in the past year and half rediscovered a love for bicycling and enjoy relating to like-minded individuals such as yourselves. My mother-in-law recently wrote a book about her mother who was the first woman to set an across the US bicycling record.
