COMING SOON...BIKEISTA EXISTS TO CREATE FUN/FUNCTIONAL CLOTHING FOR WOMEN WHO WANT TO RIDE THEIR BIKES TO WORK, TO PARTY, OR JUST FOR TRANSPORTATION.
Whether you bike to work, social events, transportation or just for the fun of it, we want you to have clothing that fits just right, is comfortable, chic, and that never fights your ride. In fact, we exist to encourage biking for women...whatever the reason. And we design for anyone who wants a healthier, more joy-filled life! Once you try our functional/fun clothes, you may decide to wear them whether you are biking or not!
With a desire to shrink my carbon footprint as well as get more exercise, I began riding my bike to work in 2007 and slowly started to realize what clothing worked best for both my professional life as an architect / psychologist, and for biking itself. I bought only stretchy clothes and also used leggings to go with shorter skirts that allowed me to ride more comfortably but still feel dressed up. Then I started riding to the symphony and parties or wherever I wanted no matter what the level of dressiness required. In 2013, I moved into my live/work studio and although I don't have to ride to work anymore, my bike is now my PMT (primary mode of transportation). This makes it even more important to wear clothes that let me jump on a bike, run a quick errand, and then get back to work. Often I am asked where I get my clothes or what it's like to ride a bike all dressed up. Eventually, I decided it would be a logical next step to start my own line of clothing and BIKEISTA was born.
