Girls on bikes

I love carefree, lighthearted images of stylish girls on equally stylish bicycles. The reality is not always as pretty as the pictures though. You've got to remember, I live in Holland. It rains here - A LOT! And even if the wind is howling and the rain is coming down like daggers, Dutch women will get on a bike and ride to work, school, the grocery store, the gym, etc. If they're lucky, they're wearing a big ol' rain suit to stay dry. Though stylish it ain't, it's practical - and we Dutchies are nothing if not practical!  But for aesthetic purposes, I will leave you with these slightly less-than candid, but extremely chic shots!
