Ever since I posted a velojoy street scene photo of a city cyclist riding a bright orange bicycle accessorized with glossy orange panniers, this color has been on my mind. I’m hardly alone: The sunny hue is one of the hottest fashion trends for summer.
Someone must have been reading my mind, because a sweet animation that cleverly captures the carefree fun of summer riding, Orange, from Language Department and Meghan Eplett for Kate Spade, recently landed in my inbox and made me smile.
All this craving for citrus led me to an online shopping expedition, where I discovered a bumper crop of ten fresh city cycling accessories in orange:
