City Bike Lifestyle Trends for 2014 Season Point to Style, Accessibility & Safety

To have options and see progress in all of these areas at once is really exciting.

Urban bike brand Brooklyn Bicycle Co. shares city bike culture trends for 2014’s Spring season, noting that everything from bike style to cycle accessibility plays a role in the most exciting year yet for two-wheeled transportation:

  • Active Lifestyle Clothing Lines: Between Giro’s New Road collection, Upright Cyclist’s Selvage Riding Denim and parkas, and sustainable mainstays like nau, all-weather bike style has never been so versatile and easy to achieve.
  • Bike Share Program Expansion: With Chicago’s Divvy set to rival New York’s Citi Bike as the nation's largest bike share program, the plight to highlight every city’s “bikeability” shows no signs of slowing down.
  • Bike Lane Improvements and Beyond: Bike lane topics are topping “Transportation Stories to Watch” lists in many major cities so far in 2014 -- everything from accommodation and safety solutions to bike-centric urban planning for the future.

“With urban biking, there’s a whole lifestyle to consider beyond the bike itself, including choices riders make in terms of style and comfort, and also how they navigate and interact with their local landscape,” said Brooklyn Bicycle Co. President, Ryan Zagata. “To have options and see progress in all of these areas at once is really exciting -- it’s feeling like The Year of The Bike,” he added.
