Cycling in a skirt

Cycling in a skirt and tights is pretty much the most comfortable way to cycle around town I have found.These photos were taken to illustrate some of the drawbacks and to highlight some strategies which can be employed with wearing a skirt. You can see from the photos that even though my skirt is long enough to be quite modest, once I am on the bike it rides up a bit, which is why I employ the “front basket as figleaf” strategy I read about on the internet …Unfortunately, the aluminium strip in the window I used to take this series of photos does nothing to enhance the educational value of the photos but hopefully they still convey what I mean. All I have to do is fill my front basket with shopping to provide enough coverage, with a wicker basket even this would not be necessary. You can also see the wonderful weather we are enjoying here at the moment, just days off winter ….

    Vicki – The tights should be enough coverage too, right? I love wearing skirts and tights. In the summer I wear lycra shorts beneath the skirts for my coffee shop jaunts. It gives us girls some flair.

    I agree Annie, the tights are pretty much enough, mostly. I think the Mary Poppins effect comes into play here too, I never get passed too closely when I am wearing a skirt!

    Thanks Ian, they were taken in front of an NAB bank window with reflective stuff on the glass, I wonder what the employees inside thought as I took those photos?
