Ljubljana Cycle Chic

From his first day in Ljubljana, Mikael excitedly told us about the understated capital city and all of its bicycle culture. Sure, we understand 10% modal share and separate cycle tracks, but what we didn't realize, until seeing photos later, was that he meant cycle chic culture. Full style-over-speed ahead, cycle chic bicycle culture.

Skirtguards, umbrellas, wicker baskets- we see it in the accessories.

We see it in the people too- in their poise and in their movements as they ride easily through their city. Keep it up Ljubljana, you're lookin' good.

Ljubljana is one of those European cities that I've been to (for just a short time), but want to go back and see more of. The people, the bike/outdoorsy culture, etc. I would love to experience it all some more!

I need one of these! Just yesterday I was riding to school and my skirt got caught in my back brake! Thankfully, I was able to yank it out without ripping my skirt, but the next time it happens I might not be that lucky.

Yes ,we are almost satisfied with our position in Ljubljana traffic. But we still have some issues, so our organization, called Ljubljana bicycle net, is constantly reminding the mayor what has to be done next. Our bicycle culture is also constantly improving so we are pretty happy.
