After a winter long, bike riding hiatus, I think I'm ready to come back. The stars are aligning; the weather is picking up, my bike has finally been properly repaired (a two year saga that I'd rather not discuss) and after collecting my bike from the bike shop today, an email about Ride to Work Day was waiting in my inbox. To further encourage my bike riding frenzy, I hit the Sartorialist to revisit some of my favourite cycling posts. I'm now feeling sufficiently inspired to get back on the bike.

It is a little tough to look as chic as the fine ladies on the Sartorialist when you need to wear a helmet. Which leads to a crazy invention I want to share with you;"The Hovding." It's basically a collar for cyclists that inflates like an airbag when it senses sudden movements. It offers safety for those who really don't like hat hair. I'm not sure I hate hat hair that much but it does sound intriguing. You can read more about it here.
