SkirtBike Event

Sunday, 22 May 2011

Before I dive into the posts I owe you from the previous weeks, let me tell you all about an amazing event that will take place in Bucharest next Sunday, the 29th of May. It's called SkirtBike and it's an event created especially for women who enjoy riding a bike through Bucharest. Sunday will be a day for celebrating bike culture, a day when you have to put on your best skirt or dress, take your bike and join the parade in order to show people that cycling is a way of life, not just a means of transportation.

The tour will start on Sunday at 3.30 PM in Piata Revolutiei and it end up at Gradina Verona for a lemonade party. The police will be escorting the parade until Piata Victoriei. Last year's first edition was very successful despite the rain in the end and a lot of photographers were there to shoot the most interesting outfits, so go on, dress up and feel like a princess on a bike for a day!

I put together a selection of the best outfits from the previous edition. My favorite shots are of the girl in the brown hooded coat, the one in the grey dress and the stylish gentleman riding a bike with an umbrella. You can be next!
