Cycling as transport. No special clothes needed. No fancy gear. Just people and bikes dressed for the destination.

Bike chic fashion show

The Rideau Canal Festival held a bike chic fashion show on the weekend. Ottawa Cycle Chic had a rough idea of what to expect and we were not surprised.

Models preparing for their fashion ride

I was not thrilled with the choice of bikes for the fashion show. This is the only model that has a bike suitable for her outfit. Even then, white jeans and no chain guard...not a good combination.

Very nice evening dresses but the bikes just don't match up.

Of course, part of the show featured local designer Richard Robinson. He lived up to his colourful reputation.

This young lady waiting for the bike chic show was actually the only one present who actually had a chic bike. She obviously understands that the bike needs to match the outfit. Something perhaps, that can be considered the next time such a show is put on. Still, it was 20 minutes of fun.
