It can be difficult to find examples of everyday cycling in Sydney.

Here are some women who have put effort into increasing the diversity of everyday cycling imagery.

Veloaporter (Sarah), Sydney

Sarah says "I decided to start this blog in January 2015 because people were always commenting on my attire while on my bicycle. I think it’s possible to ride and look elegant without needing special “bicycle clothing.” My goal is to encourage more people to bicycle for life and with style every day."

38 Days of Bike Style - "My attempt to make riding your bike be seen as stylish and aspirational and so I created my 38 days (originally 30 days) of #BikeStylish. For 38 days I took a photo of the clothing I wore on my bike. Often this was professional clothing or evening wear. I wanted to show my friends that I could be just as stylish and sexy riding my '73 Maserati road bike as I could be behind the wheel of some sports car. I got a lot of wonderful feedback and had a lot of fun with the project." - Video | Blog post

One woman. Many bicycles, Janet, California

"I’m a woman who owns a bike to suit her every mood: from dressing up for work on my Dutch bike, to carving down hills on my road bike, to hauling groceries across town on my errand bike, to cruising the trails on my custom mountain bike, to mixing it up racing cyclocross. How many bikes would that be? Well, let’s just say that I have one for every day of the week, and if it’s more than that I’m not claiming it."

Bike Pretty, Melissa, San Francisco

"As much as I loved sharing my own take on functional fashion, the best part of blogging was finding other people who were passionate about bikes, clothes, and how to use both to express themselves. Anyone can Bike Pretty: it starts with knowing we stand out from the crowd and feeling really great about that! We never know what we’ll encounter on a ride, but we know we’ll look ever so charming in the photos. ;)"
