Style Guide for the On-the-Go Yogi
Cycling and yoga goes together like peanut butter and jelly. Tight bike-riding muscles are in constant need of a little TLC and yoga can do the trick! (In fact, you can check out our stretching for cyclists tips here!)
So, why not take it one step further and ride your bike to your next yoga class? Here is a little inspiration…
How to Wear It
Riding your bike to yoga class takes a little bit of planning, but with the right bike, apparel and gear will get you on your way.
- Comfort is key! Even short rides to the studio can benefit from a little padding “down there.” It’s hard to get your flow on after you’ve been rubbed the wrong way. So, grab a nice pair of padded cycling shorts or tights to spin in comfort. And hey, no one said you can’t wear them on the mat, too!
- Layer up! Hot and steamy yoga classes on a cool Fall day can be tricky to dress for when you ride in on two wheels. Layering your sports bra, a tank or tee and a jacket is the way to go. If your prone to sweatiness during yoga, strip down to that base layer. We won’t judge!
- Have a mat transport plan! There are a few different ways to carry a yoga mat while riding a bike that are safe, secure and comfortable. Find out more about how to carry a yoga mat on a bike here!
- Don’t forget the helmet! Even if you are riding right around the corner, it’s just not worth it. Find a cute helmet and protect that noggin!
