Mailbag: Outfit Ideas & Cute Bike Helmets
Shelly, a Bike Pretty reader, e-mailed me a question:
So, I just got a Trek Pure in pale mint green with a tan seat and natural Nantucket Basket. I live in DC and will tool around with my kids. I want to get a helmet that works with the vibe of my new ride and with my clothes - lots of black, navy, white with pops of color in a T-shirt or scarf. With four kids I have to keep it simple. What do you think I should get? Plain white or a color...
I've got the answer! I picked out two cute bike helmets that look good with your bike and the colors you normally wear.
A round, dome style helmet is a million times more stylish than a regular sport helmet. Look for an adjustable dial in the back so you adjust to fit different hairstyles. And get something that has a visor, whether built-in or removable. It'll keep your head from looking too bulbous.
Nutcase Helmets has a lot of really adorable printed styles.
Have fun tooling around with your kids. And I hope you all get to go on a Mother's Day Bike Ride together! That's what I'll be doing with my mom tomorrow.
