On my ride home from work yesterday evening, I ran into my friends Janet and Dan on the Lakefront Trail. I love unexpectedly seeing friendly faces in Chicago; it always brightens my day and makes the city seem more and more like home.
As you can see, Dan and Janet have WorkCycle Omas, which they bought after visiting Amsterdam a few years ago.
Janet had on a new helmet by Yakkay, called the Luzern Faux, that she bought locally from Heritage Bikes. The Yakkay helmet can be mixed and matched with different style covers and this is one option (it also comes in white). So stylish!
At first I thought it was an actual shapka, not a helmet. These are very on trend right now (and I do love my Anna Karenina). :-)
Janet’s whole outfit was perfect for a chilly November night: fur hat, tweed coat, scarf, jeans, leather mittens, and high boots. Perfection.
I want one now, but alas I already own a black winter helmet.
You can see another Yakkay helmet cover modeled by Martha, one of the lovely women-who-brunch, in this post from last year. Has anyone else given this a try?
