Guarding your skirt with a skirt guard
We love DIY as much as the next person, and, when, we originally started commuting by bicycle, we tried a bunch of different ways to keep our skirts and dresses out of the our bike tires. We tried putting weights on the hem of our skirts; we tried hitching them up and tying with rubber bands; we even tried sitting on the bike in a way that kept our skirt bundled under our seats. But nothing was convenient. All of these methods only half-worked and always took time to set up every time we wanted to ride.
When we first started looking for solutions, there was next to nothing on the internet. After much research, we found a british bicycle store that would ship skirt guards to us from across the ocean, but that was quite a lot of hassle and expense. That’s what motivated us to bring a simple solution to US customers. With the growing number of people who choose to forego transportation by car and opt to cycle, we knew there would be more of us who faced this problem - wanting to cycle everywhere but not wanting to have to redo their wardrobes to be be more cycle friendly.
IF you get a step-through bicycle and outfit it with one of our skirt guards, you’ll be surprised by how easy it becomes to ride a bike in a dress or skirt. The only problem these solutions don’t solve is that you still have to hold your skirt down if you don’t want to reveal what’s under it!
How do you deal with your cycling and style related troubles? We would love to know!
