I've always been in love with the idea of commuting to work by bike. Nothing screams urban, hip and cool like zipping around the city on a bike. Having just recently moved literally five minutes from my job, I'm finally able to do just that. I've got my bike (two to be exact), but I can't just jump on and go. I must be properly outfitted! That's why when I came across Lululemon's "Ride On" collection I felt like I had died and gone to heaven. Any time I can meld my passion for fashion, with my love of health and fitness, it's a win, win. Here's a few of my favorite items from the collection.
Ride On Blazer$168
This slim fitted blazer keeps you warm and has reflective detail. Plus there's no need to shed the jacket once you get to work, rock it through the day if you work in a casual environment, or on casual Friday. Now that's what I call fashionable and functional.
Ride on Crop$92
Think of these as your favorite Saturday pants. Hit the pavement and then hit the Farmer's Market and any other errands on your list. The pants features four-way stretch, moisture wicking and gives you a full-range of motion. Really, there's no need to take these puppies off.
A bike isn't complete without a bell. It's all a part of the experience.
The Wet Coast Pack$108
The Wet Coast Pack isn't a part of the "Ride On" collection, but a backpack is a must. Not only is it waterproof, it's big enough for my laptop and has side straps to carry a yoga mat and tons of pockets for all the necessities.
