With spring fully sprung, and our bikes officially out of retirement, what better day than Earth Day to stop by the office of Bike PGH to give biking babes Becca and Jane a retro-inspired outfit revamp?

Since its founding in 2002, Bike PGH has been transforming Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania communities and streets into safe and accessible places for people to bike and walk. Armed with Bike PGH’s comprehensive bike pamphlet filled with maps, safety info, reflectors, and a handy crash report (which we thankfully didn’t need), we hit the streets of Pittsburgh for an afternoon ride. Take a peek at their office, see how our ModStylists retro remixed Becca and Jane!

    Cute girls and outfits, although I hope that the female staff at BikePgh is more than just eye candy for the organization.

      JonB – Are you also hoping that these male staffers from Asheville On Bikes modeling these t-shirts (http://ashevilleonbikes.com/aob-t-shirts-are-here) aren’t just eye candy for their organization?

      nothing against them, I just don’t know what else those 2 ladies do except for looking pretty at events

    Love the outfits! Does anyone know where the cute bag that’s attached to the handlebars is from? It’s shown in the last 3 pictures.

    Indeed, JonB. We men must remain ever vigilant that the women featured in fashion blogs remain objectified, instead of being appreciated as active professionals in their field.

    Looking great ladies. Will you be fixing up the boys next? They’re the ones that need the work. Put LF in some salmon skinny jeans, pale yellow Sperry’s, and a white cardigan.
    @Kim H – If I had to guess, the bag is by a company called Minnehaha Bags (online, google it). Very nice. But if you want some seriously sweet bike bags look up a company called “Po Campo”. Nice.

    Nice Pics!! Love this all beautiful dress and all accessories. Looking unique and different style.

    I can’t help but notice that both women own men’s frames … it would be more than a bit inconvenient to mount that style of bike with the above-the knee skirts they’ve been styled in. It makes me feel like their new looks don’t totally represent who THEY are as cyclists, and women.
