The Charleston City Paper is Cycle ChicPosted: May 3, 2009
Erica Jackson of the Charleston City Paper just posted this on her fantastic blog – Seersucker and Stilettos.
“May is National Bike Month, and from May 11-15 in particular, cyclists are encouraged to bike to work. If you live close enough to where you work to be able to make your way on two wheels, now’s the time to ditch the excuses and get some fresh air. It really is an incredible way to start your morning, even if you do get to work a little sweaty and breathless. Just ask downtown real estate agent, Kristin Walker. She proves that you can be a biker and glamorous at the same time — no need to ditch the high heels. Just check out these chic cyclers on Sartorialist. Kristin is so eager to see Charleston become a little biker’s haven (a la Amsterdam), that she’s working on creating a company called Pedal to Properties, which will allow prospective buyers to experience the city via bicycle (truly the best way). She’s also talking with Charleston Moves about planning a stylish mass ride to mark Bike to Work Day later this month. Stay posted, and for now, check out her tips on staying chic while cycling
