A penny for them; cycling freedom with ‘Penny in ‘Yo Pants’


I love dresses and in this warm weather I’m finding wearing them invaluable. However I also love to cycle and until recently I found to two to be incompatible. There have been many days when I’ve ventured out to collect my bike wearing a lovely frock only to be met with winds that have blown me back inside, to change into the safety of trousers. Ladies you will know what I mean, you want to cycle but you don’t want to show your knickers to all the other road users!

A couple of days ago a friend shared this video with me. Such a simple idea that it’s genius! I wanted to share it with you but also the message behind ‘Penny in ‘Yo Pants”a message for the freedom of all women cyclists.

I take it for granted that any day and everyday I can just hop on my bike and go; for work, for errands and for leisure. Throughout it’s history the bike has been a symbol of liberation for women and a mechanism of freedom.  ‘Penny in ‘Yo Pants’ continues that journey by aiming to sponsor the Afghanistan women’s cycling team through the sale of their forthcoming ‘Penny in ‘Yo Pants’ product.
