Keep on Begriming, It Suits You

Before Citibike, it was a rare occasion to spot men pedaling while dressed in a business a suit. More often than not, I would see them ‘dressed down’ or in cycling gear making their way to work. Often they’d be sporting backpacks to transport a change of clothes or whatever else they felt they needed.

We’re two months into Citibike being live in NYC. More and more people are giving those blue bikes a try- many for the first time. Virtually ‘overnight’, there’s been an explosion of men in suits on Citibikes. The message is spreading: you don’t need ‘special gear’ to ride a bike, just wear what you already own. No sweat involved. It’s easy.

Frankly, it’s just nice to see people dressed up rather than dressed down. Men of #bikeNYC…you’re looking good. Keep it up.
