MINNEAPOLIS--Bike commuting has become so popular, it's inspired a fashion category. No more dressing like a racer, or worse yet, a bus rider.
Now there are skinny jeans with reflective strips and canvas kicks that attach to pedal clips. It's hip meets sporty, and the clothes and gear will take you from road to office to dinner and a concert in the park.
Mpls.St.Paul Magazine style editor Allison Kaplan shows us the look, and where to get it in town.
A full half of the population of MN has ridden a bike in the last year.
People are looking for clothes that will take them from their bike to the office, or dinner, etc. Not everyone wants to look like they're riding in a race. You can find them here.
Companies are beginning to create urban bike gear that is both fashionable and functional
A new store in the North Loop, Handsome Cycles is capitalizing on this trend, selling custom bikes and active, urban apparel for men and women.
