Biking is a great way to get around in nice weather—not only will it take care of your weekly exercise quota, you’ll be doing your bit to reduce traffic and cut down on summertime smog. Best of all, though, spandex shorts need not be involved, thanks to the host of style-friendly, high-performance gear that’s now available. Not only has there never been a better time to hit the road on two wheels, it’s never been easier to look good doing it.
