How to ride a bike in a tutu

Have you ever been wearing a tutu and wanted to ride a bike at the same time, but were worried about ruining your skirt? Here is a little tutorial on how to keep your tulle from getting chain grease stains or caught on anything you ride past. It can also be adapted for long skirts.

    that skirt is absolutely gorgeous!  i think if i had one like that, i'd try to figure a way to wear it every day of the week!

  2. Actually, I call it my "Thursday skirt" because I wear it almost every Thursday. Somehow I feel like it keeps me from actually wearing it every single day  and people thinking I'm a ragamuffin ;)

  4. Spring. Contact me. Rich will  hook you up with a refurbished vintage bike for less than $100 if you're interested. Its kind of his hobby to put everyone on two wheels.

  10. Excellent! I have a dutch bike with a special plate to a protect a lady's skirt from the wheels and chain, so I haven't encountered this problem as yet. Your skirt is v pretty!

  13. I bike in every outfit shown on the blog (its how I get to the LIRR), the only clothes that give me issues are pants because they slide off and expose my back/butt. Skirts like naturally fold in so that nothing shows.

  19. You are a genius!  Even though I don't personally ride bikes in a tutu, I have a couple of blogger friends who I am pretty sure ... Now I can point them in the direction of your blog!

  22. Fun tutorial, and a darling outfit! Where did you get that skirt?

  23. H&M in the spring. There was this similar one in yellow and I'm still ticked off I didn't get it.

  24.  That is fairly genius, and the skirt is awesome. However, I'm not sure it would work for me, or at least, I have some questions. I ride a full-size folding bike that does not have a step-through frame. Since the skirt will be bunched up on the top tube more, do you think it would be a problem catching in the wheel? Or do I just need to get myself a pair of shorts to wear underneath?

    ReplyDelete
  25. Interesting question, I don't think that it would get caught in the wheel though. I would say the only issue you'd have once its bunched up would be getting your leg over without flashing everyone but I'm sure you're familiar with the drop the bike on its side and step over method for getting on without sharing your business.

  28. How handy! I've never had this problem, but it's good to have a solution should the need arise!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Oooh, yellow is my weakness. I seriously think half my wardrobe is mustard-colored. Regardless, though, this version of the skirt is still so lovely! Ah, the tragedy of not having an H&M anywhere nearby...
