Halloween Idea for Charleston Cycle Chic-sters

Yes, we know it’s a bit early to start thinking about Halloween, but we can’t help ourselves because we are going to a cool Downtown Halloween party on October 29, that includes a pedestrian and bicycle parade around the Cannonborough/Elliotborough neighborhood, a party in the park, music, a pie contest, food trucks and more.  Plus, it’s fun to have an excuse to shop for a costume on Ebay and Etsy.

So here’s an idea for any ladies who will be arriving by bicycle.  What if we all try to replicate these gorgeous vintage bicycle posters?

Hands off ladies...red chiffon dress here we come.

Does anyone dare?


High Heels and Two Wheels – right here in Charleston

It’s embarrassing to admit that we didn’t know about this blog until today.  We know the person, have met her several times, follow her on Twitter, even saw her loading up her bike at the grocery store the other day.

But had not read her blog.  Shame shame.

So here’s a shout out to a brave and beautiful woman, who gave up her car in favor of the bike, who rides with style and grace, and is pretty funny too.  Read her blog now.  High Heels and Two Wheels.

Erin, will you be our new mascot?  Pretty please?

Here’s a pic of her courtesy of MNN


Girls on Bikes – Gorgeous Video by Phillip Lim

We came across this homage to girls on bikes courtesy of Copenhagen Cycle Chic.  It’s impossible to look this breezy in a car.  Watch and enjoy!


Charleston Springtime Cool

The men are just killin’ it lately in the Charleston Cycle Chic-dom.  Check out Mr. Gidick in this photo provided by Hunter McRae on a bicycle provided by our very own Affordabike.  It’s the perfect combo of Charleston new and Charleston old and classy style all the way around.

P.S. We are loving those Biria bikes.  Ladies and gents, find yourself one.


Man about Town

We caught this gent out and about the other day, and wanted to give him a shout out for lookin’ so fine, on so chic a ride outfitted for the work-a-day.  Stephan, we love your style, and particularly your springtime orange tie.


Bicycle. Charleston. Happy.

For the new year Charleston Cycle Chic decided to have fun with Picnik.  This is our statement for 2011.  Do ya feel it? 🙂


Pedal Chic – A Bike Store for Woman, opens in Greenville, SC

Yes – we are jealous.  We would love to see a female-focused bicycle shop here in Charleston.  Pedal Chic opens soon in Greenville, SC.  Here is the description from their website and we love their tagline!
