UK company Rohan recently released a line of technical cycling apparel, including a chamois insert to add some extra padding to your everyday clothes. For those times when you aren't out for a full-on ride, the Bumper Liner will add a bit of comfort to your bike commute or cruise to the coffee shop.
At Interbike this year, I was given a pair of the new RPM bike shorts from SUGOI to test out. Since the show in September, I have been wearing the bike shorts for training rides around Marin, my bike commute to the climbing gym in the city and I even wore them for Levi's GranFondo (picture below).

I met Abbie Durkee, the founder of women's bike apparel company My Alibi, at an OIWC event last month. An inspirational woman, she started My Alibi three years ago with a passion to persuade more women out of their cars and onto their bikes, all while looking good doing it. My Alibi's goal is to make women feel beautiful and confident while riding their bike.
