From Geek To Chic: Biking Gets Glamorous

The Daily Mail has declared biking the "It" activity this season.

Agyness Deyn has an Electra, Chloe Sevigny loves her folding Royce Union and Jennifer Aniston is thrilled with her Chanel, a present from close friend Courteney Cox. We're talking bikes, because this season cycling has finally gone from geek to chic.

Forget DayGlo Lycra; the vogue in pedal power is all about gorgeous pannier bags, leopard-print saddles and bicycle bells covered in Swarovski crystals.

'There is nothing more glamorous than gliding down the street in a lovely floaty dress,' says Caz Nicklin, whose new website was picked up in Vogue's October trend report.

'It's almost as if we have come full circle. In its day, cycling was groundbreaking for women. It brought us trousers and meant we could go places on our own. Now, it's back again as a stylish pastime.
