Thursday Commuteblogging: MG’s Bike Friday Tikit and Keen Cycling Sandals

Some of us just have more style on the bike. I make no claims. I ride Sidi shoes and Pearl Izumi shorts, just like everybody else, though I’ve settled on wool jersies over poly.

MG, on the other hand, long ago figured out how to find clothes that look great on and off the bike. She will find a pair of capri pants at REI on sale and they’ll work perfectly. She can also pull off the cool look on a folder, in this case her brand new Bike Friday Tikit folding bicycle.

MG loves this bike because she can fold it up and roll it into her building, which does not allow full size bicycles into the offices. Rather than leave it locked in the parking garage, she puts it under her desk! While riding, it feels normal. That’s high praise for a folder with 16-inch wheels.

MG is also happy with her new Keen cycling sandals. Unlike Shimano and Lake, they look and feel less bulky and still manage to include a stiff cycling sole and front toe protection. MG reports that she has yet to take them on a century, but around town they feel good.

  1. Hi there! I guess it depends on who you ask w/ regard to the long commuting. It’s comfy but not super speedy… so as I say, if you are trying to get on the morning commute podium, this is not the bike :).

  2. Ed! Looks like your Verizon email address is kaput. Well, I’ll try reach you this way. I’m putting together a little BF piece on using the tikit to commute. Noticed this triffic Pic of Mary. Wondering if we can share that with the world. Let me know. Uh,I guess my deadline is, like half an hour from now :o)
