Dakine Women’s Siren Shorts :: The Best Women’s Baggy on the Market?

I am not the biggest fan of baggy mountain bike shorts– preferring lycra any day of the week. It’s light, smooth and doesn’t get caught on your saddle. It’s one layer, breathable and fast. Yet I wear baggy mountain bike shorts from time to time, especially on longer trail rides. I’ve had mixed experiences with […]

Mountain Bike Commute :: Cat Encounter

I am one of few people in the World who can say, “I ride my mountain bike to work, on dirt.” It is hands down the best part of my job. How many people can say their commute is the best part of their job? Each ride, morning and evening, provides me with an adventure. […]

Giro Women’s Helmets, Shoes and Gloves :: mtbchick’s Choice

“Style is something all of us already has, all we need to do is find it.” Diane von Furstenberg

There is nothing quite like slipping into a DVF dress, but one can’t always wear a designer dress, especially while mountain biking.
