TWICE AS NICE
Saddle up the ol’ two-speed with a pair of panniers for stowing extra gear on your rear rack.

For the girl who kicks everyone’s tuckus in a bike race—while wearing a skirt and heels, no less!—look no further than Urban Lace’s tough yet feminine bracelets, necklaces, and earrings made from recycled bicycle inner tubes.
HIGH AND DRY
Terra New York’s water-resistant trench coats, parkas, and capes boast heat-sealed seams to keep bodies bone dry in a downpour. They’re also made from solvent-free and biodegradable TPU (that’s thermoplastic polyurethane, for the acronym-challenged), which breaks down in a landfill after 15 years of nonuse.
Light up someone’s nightlife with Lucy Activewear’s machine-washable “nightlight” jacket, which features 360-degree reflectivity, a three-inch light-up LED on the back, and zip-off sleeves that convert it into a vest.
Friends don’t let friends wear spandex hot pants. Levi’s cyclist-friendly 511 Skinny Commuter jean offers extra coverage for the derriere, a reinforced crotch, reflective tape on the interior cuffs, and a utility waistband for strapping on a U-lock.
IF THE SHOE FITS
Keen’s Coronado Cruiser only looks like your average canvas-and-leather sneaker. Each recycled-rubber sole features a hidden panel under the ball of the foot so you can maintain a barnacle-like grip on the pedals.
BELT ONE OUT
Go off road and keep your pants up with a belt made from recycled bicycle tires. Handmade by artist Julien Jaborska in Portland, OR, each waist-cincher features a distinct pattern to its tread, along with different levels of wear and tear.
