Can't we vote for our faves?
So far, bloomer girl gets my pick. Love the matching eyelit on her little flats..

Sure you can vote! But we'd rather have you contribute a bike to bar pic instead so we can vote for you!

I always consider riding my bike to work, but I'm sort of terrified of riding without a helmet and other protective gear. I wonder how these girls have gotten past that. Maybe I'm just a little paranoid.

Adiel - scroll a little further down the blog and there's links to some awesome helmet designers who make cool, fashionable helmets - Nutcase, Bern, Yakkay and Sawako Furuno. If it makes you feel safer, then wear it!

When I commute to work, I always feel safer when I wear my helmet riding down busy thoroughfares.

thanks, KT. and thanks remixers.

@adiel, i always where a helmet when I'm riding next to cars. Sometimes I wear gloves too, must mostly for warmth and not so much for protection. One can wear a dress and a helmet at the same time, and boots if it makes them feel safer. :D
