One last ride!As you guys know, this summer I took on the challenge of learning to ride a bike as an adult and I’ve been sharing the story with you here.I never learned how to ride as a kid so I thought, hey why not give this a whirl. After a few fun weekends of trying (and failing) I now consider myself an official (okay, amateur) rider.
For me, the hardest parts were learning to pedal and just getting used to the body positions you have to make to ride – you might not think about it if you’re a seasoned rider but as someone new, it’s hard to get used to.
I’m so thankful for modcloth and they’re must have dress styles that keep me stylish though my many falls this summer – I knew that every time I got ready to ride, I at least looked good style wise, even if I made a total fool out of myself on the bike. For today’s look, and the final part of my learning to ride series, I pulled out this darling bike dress. It has pockets, a cute collar and a fun cut out to create the illusion to a crop top/coord set and is the perfect dress for a bike ride around town !
I paired my dress with the cutest brown oxfords, also from modcloth. I’ve been mostly riding in flexible sneakers, so trying to do so in oxfords was tough but doable, I love these shoes but I wouldn’t recommend riding with them day one tho! On my dress, you’ll find a turquoise bike and a red one to match two of my three actual bikes from Public Bikes ! This red C71 from Pubic Bikes has actually become my favorite to ride on. It’s just a touch more challenging then my other two bikes (see them here & here) but I think that’s why I like it. Once I get going it’s better for long distances and really fun to practice on.
Now, I know what you’re thinking – you want to see me ride, right? Well you’re in luck! Press play & lets ride !
