Skirt Garter for Biking

Bicycle Babes it’s summer in the southern hemisphere so it’s biking in skirts time!

For those of you in winter, keep this in the back of your bicycle mind.

Another clever skirt idea is here, this one is from Bird Industries, based in Minneapolis USA, and all hand crafted by none other than a Bicycle Babe!

I tested their skirt garter in my favorite silk bicycle skirt and here are the test results.

The Good

1. Secure – this skirt garter certainly won’t fall off. Unlike the KATCH which had slippage issued on silk and linen fabrics.

2. Subtle – the garter strap is very easily hidden under your skirt.


Transform Traffic Congestion.

Author and guest blogger, Rachel Smith, decongests the problem of traffic congestion because we have a problem!

The average Aussie, British and American family spends more time sitting in their car than they spend sitting around their own kitchen table.

The average adult spends the first two months of every working year just covering the cost of maintaining a car, and many of us will spend more than $25,000 a year on parking fees.

Our cities are killing us, but most of all they are robbing us of our money and our precious time. Many of us now spend more than 15 hours a week sitting in traffic, and more than 80% of us are failing to get an hour of exercise every day.

A text message I receive from my friend Michelle who lives and works in Brisbane says it all:

“Been stuck on the bus home for over an hour now.

Silverbeet Soup That Will Surprise!

This recipe is going to knock your silverbeet socks off!

Everyone hates silverbeet right, and so they should! It’s simply a terrible vegetable, right? Wrong! So wrong!

Silverbeet (also called Chard) might look ‘too good for you’ to be palatable, but this is one misunderstood culinary delight.

So the story goes I’m looking after a friend’s house while she’s on holiday and in the garden is a huge pot of silverbeet.

I pride myself on being able to cook with something underwhelming and make something amazing.

So every day when I walk past the pot of silverbeet I’m sure it whispers to me, ‘You can’t do it, can you!’

Until one day I’ve had enough of its taunts and I cut six shimmering silverbeet leaves.

Now it’s Bicycle Babe one, Silverbeet zero.

A World Best in Bicycle Rainwear

Georgia In Dublin - Rainwrap.

Georgia In Dublin – Rainwrap.

Nobody wants to look bad, but let’s face it bicycle rainwear does not have a good reputation, by anyone’s standards, least of all Bicycle Babe standards.

So when I tested out Georgia In Dublin bicycle rainwear, designed by mother-daughter duo Nickie and Georgia, I was not only dry, I was delighted!

I’m going to assert that they make the best bicycle rainwear I’ve come across in my global search for Bicycle Babe fashion and accessories, and that’s saying something because I’ve literally travelled the world!

Georgia In Dublin is a boutique bicycle fashion house in Dublin, Ireland, that specializes in beautifully styled and clevery designed women’s bicycle rainwear.

Their products have won awards, and rightly so,

Essential Self Care Tip For A Bicycle Life


Self care is not a phrase I ever used when I drove a car. Sitting still doesn’t seem to take much of a toll on the body, so taking special care of yourself doesn’t seem necessary.

How wrong that was!

Sitting still takes the ultimate toll on your body, people who sit still for most of the day lose years off their life, but because it’s a toll that slowly keeps up on you, we don’t normally take any notice.

A bicycle lifestyle not only has you feeling great each day, but it has you feeling great for life!

Pedaling your way to work, or wherever else you need to go, gets your blood flowing as it should be, your muscles flexing as they are designed to,

The Bachelor? Ride Like the Wind, Ladies!

Let us weigh in on The Bachelor debate, bicycle babes.

No one has mentioned the fact that this is one of the few times in human history when we are witness to a man behaving like a damsel in distress and wooing women by fluttering his ‘multi-colour’ eyes.

Thanks, Lana, for pointing that out, again!

There almost isn’t a single moment in history when men have wanted, never mind volunteered, to be fought over. It is a grown man’s instinct to want to prove his prowess with women, not the other way around.

It used to only ever be the twisted fantasy of the skinny geeks, who couldn’t wield a sword if they tried, to rock out with their cock out surrounded by a haream of highly-painted concubines.

One of the last times men played that role was when China’s last boy emperor,
