Biking is an excellent way to save money in transit and get some cardio exercise, especially if you’re in a hurry to get from A to B on time. But you need clothing and accessories that are comfortable, safe, and that will help you stay dry when you sweat.

The good news is that there are many casual rider options in the market that offer both function and style. Here we’ve rounded up some of our favorites to wear when you go almost anywhere this summer.

If you’re going to an engagement that warrants a bit of dressing up (think: evening terrace, coffee date with friends), consider a skort. This pull-on option from Penningtons has handy side pockets for small items (keys, cards, etc.) and has built-in shorts that provide extra protection for a comfortable ride.

You can never go wrong with a classic white sneaker. Retro styles in particular have a fashionable moment, like the Club C 85 model from Reebok, which features a lightweight shock-absorbing midsole and a leather upper to support the entire foot during medium pedal travel.

The last thing everyone wants when they pull up to their destination is their t-shirt soaked in sweat. This Simons option is made from a breathable stretch jersey that wicks away moisture and dries quickly.

Back to work? Skip the morning change of clothes on arrival by opting for elegant garments that do double duty. These tapered ankle pants by Uniqlo are made of a technical fabric that offers sufficient flexibility and comfort for your morning commute, but also doesn’t look out of place in the office.

If you need to bring a bag, a speakerphone is your best bet. This oversized bum bag from the Canadian brand FWD offers three spacious compartments with space for the essentials (keys, phone, wallet), a water bottle, sunscreen, a paperback … and possibly more.

Yes, you can absolutely ride a bike in one dress, it’s just a matter of safety. Instead of something with ruffles or layers that could potentially get caught in moving bike parts, opt for a streamlined silhouette. This minimalist, maxi-length t-shirt dress has side slits that can be easily tied together for minimal interference with bikes and pedals.

Gym shorts are a breeze when it comes to outdoor activities, but don’t grab your old shorts this season: the 5-inch inseam is officially the length of the day, like celebs like Pharrell Williams, Milo Ventimiglia, and Paul. prove mescal. Nike’s mid-thigh woven shorts are an ideal introduction to this daring style thanks to their roomy fit. Bonus: Its mesh lining ensures maximum breathability on super hot days.

If you want to cruise in sandals, you should opt for styles that do not slip. The back strap of these cougar wedges keeps your feet secure and the chunky EVA sole ensures a grounded feel when you come to a standstill.

The mini-bag craze is still strong. To safely carry this trend in the saddle, look for models equipped with a cross-body harness. Our choice? The Mini Croc by Ai Toronto Seoul, which comes with not just one but two removable straps in different lengths.
