Onto the Next Cycle


For the diehard rider, car-less commuter or cycle-lover, your daily wardrobe is all about strategy. But who’s to restrict your attire to spandex, or say you can’t be stylish? Clintonville resident Esther Dwyer’s go-to outfit is almost always a dress or skirt, proving that there are no rules and you can make (almost) anything work on two wheels.

Whether it’s a tour, recreation or form of release after a long day, any road-bike rider wants to stay cool in clothing that’s functional and comfortable, but also isn’t an eyesore.
