Weekend Spring Cycling Part 2: Annie

Annie is a local who spends a lot of time riding, whether commuting to and from work every day or spending weekends training for charity rides on her road bike.  For everyday riding, she often chooses a retro commuter from Trek, whose three speeds can be tricky when negotiating the hills on the way to the office.

The weather is still cold, so scarf, jacket and gloves are a necessity.  Annie wears them all when cycling around town to run errands or meet friends for coffee, and includes a felt hat, although she is quick to point out, “I usually wear a helmet!”  With her casual look that is still highly functional for cycling, Annie epitomizes the type of urban chic that allows for person-powered transportation while not relegating one to spandex and butt padding  better reserved for long rides.
