The Simple Secret to Biking in a Skirt

Ever throw on a skirt and wish you could bike in it? After all, skirts are way, way comfier and less confining than pants. But with the breezes caressing your face and hair, odds are your skirt will catch a lift as well, meaning — eek — a parachute of unintended exposure.

So how can you avoid this while biking in your favorite liberating skirt? Put a Penny in Yo’ Skirt. All in takes is a penny or similar object, a rubber band, and a skirt! With the penny at the back of the skirt, push it forward, through your legs, so that it is wrapped with both the front and back fabrics of the skirt. Twist the fabric around it to make a sort of button, and wrap the rubber band to secure. It’s that easy! Now, go enjoy an entirely new world of skirt freedom without fear of public indecency! Or, watch the awesome “Penny in Yo’ Skirt” video above.
