We know all the perks of biking around D.C. — it's a killer workout, an eco-friendly commuting option, and an easy, breezy way to get your errands done. So, it’s no wonder that city cyclists — us included — are swooning over Washington's newest (and dare we say it — coolest?) bicycle shop, The Daily Rider.
Hosting everything from super-diverse nightlife options to can't-miss restos, the H Street corridor already plays a big part in our out-and-about agendas, and now, we can pick up essentials for our two-wheel treks there, as well. Think a slew of vintage-inspired bikes that conjure up lazy days tooling around Amsterdam or Paris, and Yakkay helmets that are more Audrey Hepburn in How to Steal a Million than bug-like.
The shop is all about the convergence of aesthetics and practicality, so you’ll find a medley of European-style town bikes and accessories for your just-cruising-around jaunts. Dying for super-stylish rain ponchos or artisanal bottle holders? They've got you covered — pretty much every cycle-chic essential is on hand, here. Click through for a special tour of this snapshot-worthy shop, and head over to get in (extra-glam) gear for your own spring pedaling prep.
