Which Biking Bae Are You? A Guide To Cycling in Style

From “Bicyclette Bae” to “Quiet Raver,” here’s your guide for every ride.

We feel you–cycling exudes an undeniable cool air. Yet, the sartorial puzzle it presents can leave you stumped. How can you still look cool when your ride takes more than 30 minutes and all you crave is the snug feeling of cycling shorts, a laid-back hoodie and sneakers? In fact, a recent study by Lime showed that nine out of ten adults avoid cycling because they’re worried about what to wear and more than half of cyclists want stylish clothes for biking.

We think it’s fun and easy to dress the part. That’s why we’ve gathered four different styles you can try. Whether you’re into the “Bicyclette Bae,” “Cyber Slay,” “MILF Mania” or “Quiet Raver,” pick the one that matches your personality best and ride forth while embracing it.

Continue scrolling to uncover which biking bae suits you best, as well as a few of our favorite bikes to match.

Bicyclette Bae

The Bicyclette Bae isn’t bothered by the mundane nor stopped by frilly, cottagecore dressing for her rides. Instead she opts for a layered look such as pairing SHUSHU/TONG and P.E. Nation x ASICS dresses. Mesh garments such as a long sleeve, graphic Miaou top offer her a sweat free journey without having to compromise her chic nature in route. To ensure slip-free peddling, the Bicyclette Bae maintains her femme-flair with comfortable footwear such as the Sandy Liang x Salomon RX Moc 3.0.

Fit for a country queen, we paired the Bicyclette Bae with the Cowboy x ba&sh Cruiser ST. The e-bike is both elegant and intelligent and merges sustainable mobility with autumn style, just like her.

Cyber Slay

Some people love to match their outfits with their boos, while others prefer to coordinate with a vibrant lime commuter bike. Whether you see it as going above and beyond or just keeping up with the latest fashion trends, that lively lime green has become the new trendy Bottega Veneta green (facts).

Speaking of mixing things up, we’re now seeing football jerseys paired with flowing skirts. So, why not take it a step further and consider a cycling top? One option we recommend is the below Rapha x Shrimps option. It boasts a subtle lime bike cyber undertone, coupled with a cottagecore print. We paired this with the latest collaborative cycling shorts from ASICS and P.E Nation, along with matching socks and the Cecilie Bahnsen x ASICS Mary Janes in Pure Silver. To finish things off, consider slipping on cycling-inspired sunglasses, such as these from Gentle Monster. Bike-wise, why not ride off into the sunset with this bad*ss “Makka” bike by Cake?

MILF Mania

MILF Mania riders are all about feel-good dressing, whether you’re a plant, dog or bike mom. Not one to forego color, ever, our pick for this look is all about technicolor pairing whether it be with a bright pink Set Active sweat or abstract rainbow swirls from P.E. Nation x ASICS. Don’t fear leaving accessories at home as Hey Harper has you sorted with sweat-resistant jewelry. It’s water-proof Monica Necklace can withstand perspiration and moody climates making it the perfect match for your on-the-go lifestyle.

It’s easy to throw shade in A BETTER FEELING sunnies, we recommend the ONYX BLACK, which makes you feel like you’re on a Tour de Fashion. As for footwear? In true anti-monochromatic style, why not add in leopard print to the mix, in the form of the brand new Tabi slip-ons. Speaking of bikes, Cowboy is once again a perfect pairing – this time in a matte p(r)each.

Quiet Raver

Opting for an all-black ensemble while cycling not only shields you from potential stain mishaps but also provides a trendy, ready-for-anything style. Our pick for this look features a complete J.KIM outfit. It begins with the label’s soft long-sleeve jersey adorned with metallic rings and flower motifs, paired with the “Lattice Shorts,” which embody the diversity of cycling short designs.

To complement these, we paired the ensemble with Rombaut’s “Boccaccio II Mount Black” shoes, crafted from vegan, durable leather alternatives. Don’t be concerned about the chunky sole–this silhouette ranks among the most comfortable we’ve tested. For the perfect finishing touch to an all-black look, our advice is to incorporate a splash of color with sporty socks and, of course, a pair of sunnies that exude a rave-ready vibe. The suggested “Allez Sport” bike by Specialized does not give you the speed you might be after in a 48-hour rave, but it is, for sure, one of the fastest, most lightweight options available in the market.
