Cycle Chic in Copenhagen and Beyond

10:59 AM PDT on May 24, 2010

You can trace the term "cycle chic" back to 2006, when Mikael Colville-Andersen launched his Copenhagen Cycle Chic
blog. It means different things to different people, but basically,
"cycle chic" is about riding in everyday clothes instead of specialized
gear like spandex or cycling shoes.
]When I was in Copenhagen last December I had the chance to meet up with Colville-Andersen. After touring the city's first-rate bike infrastructure,
I asked him about cycle chic. He said the number of collaborators and
followers around the world is constantly growing, making cycle chic a
movement-within-a-movement. So for this video, I crowdsourced video
from a few other cycle chic bloggers to see what's so hot about using
fashion and style to promote bicycling. Enjoy!
