Cyclists in The Netherlands or Denmark will find cycle chic far easier to accomplish than riders in Sydney or New York. In countries with bicycle lanes and right of way laws, bike journeys are safe and comfortable with no need for fashion-diminishing accessories like helmets and fluoro vests. If wearing a helmet is essential and your goal is to look as little like a Lego man as possible, Sawako Furuno and Yakkay create adorable protective headgear. Another nifty essential is a cape, which has the rare ability to be both functional and make you ridiculously attractive (seriously have you ever seen anyone not look incredible in a cape?). We like this one from Victoria’s Secret and this one from Cycle Style.
