The benefits of biking include (but aren’t limited to): great calves; heightened hand-eye coordination; the green light to wear spandex (to some, this is indeed a wonderful thing).
Maybe it’s time to take cycling fashion up a notch.
Put down the R.E.Load bag, roll down your pant leg, and start pedaling for Fabric Horse spats. The classy accessory, most often worn by old-school mobsters and men with top hats, is making a comeback in the cycling community.
The ecofriendly, water-resistant, waxed-canvas version wraps around your calf to keep your jeans from getting caught in your bike chain. (It’ll also keep your leg warm and dry.)
Take your pick of lengths and patterns: Try brown knee-highs when you have to trudge through puddles, polka-dot anklets when you’re feeling rather sunny.
That should steer you in the right direction.
