07/22/2011: "And Some "Cycle Chic" on the Side...."
Here's a bit of circumstantial "cycle chic" from LA: Gina coming home from a bike/bus trip to a business meeting in Century City. A quick pedal to the Third Street Farmers Market to park the bike and catch the bus--which also gave her the chance pick up some groceries on the way back. Saved her a frustrating drive and expensive parking.
Note how her Po Campo briefcase/pannier (bought at Flying Pigeon LA
, one of Bicycle Fixation's retailers and the site of my Wednesday LA bike news blogging) fit handily onto the front of her basket using the clever rack mount straps!
Here's a close-up:
Other cycling high-technology employed for this "difficult" (to the US mindset) multi-modal trip in car-centric LA: one spring-steel British-style pants clip, purchased for about a dollar around twenty years ago.
