May 13 2014 - 10:57am

If you're celebrating National Bike Month, take note: cycling gear isn't all spandex shorts and goofy bike helmets. In fact, made-for-your-commute cycling gear is not only comfortable, but, dare we say, cute. Check out a few of our favorite pants, dresses, bags, and more that are made for the commuter who doesn't want to sacrifice style while two-wheeling to and from work.

Handlebar Cupholder

If the fresh air isn't enough to wake you up, this Rav X handlebar cupholder [1] ($15) — which fits a to-go cup or tapered thermos of coffee perfectly — is a must-have accessory for your morning commute.

Nau Henley

This thin-as-air, breathable Nau henley [2] ($75) is just what you need to throw on when Summer days become unbearable. It'll save you from feeling like a melted mess when you get to the office.

Bern Berkeley Helmet

Biking without a helmet isn't fashionable, so stay safe and invest in one. Not into the bubble head look? The Bern Berkeley helmet [3] ($80) has a smaller and slimmer fit without sacrificing safety.

Athleta Tee Dress

This Athleta Tee Dress [4] ($69) is the perfect length and material for easy riding. Wear with a cardigan for a simple Summer work outfit.

Iladora Bike Pant

Commuting doesn't have to be just for casual Fridays. The Ilador Perfect Bike Pant [5] ($135) fits in with the pantsuits and pencil skirts. The tailored fit helps you look cute at the office, while the all-weather material and strategic stretch help get you there in one piece.

Linus Satchel

Wear it on your back or on your bike — the Linus Satchel [6] ($95) hooks onto your bike rack, comes with a removable back and shoulder strap, and has a padded pocket that fits a 15-inch laptop.

Vespertine Blazer

Make a statement on and off the bike with this cherry red Vespertine Blazing Blazer [7] ($158). With a window-pane design that's also reflective and a pleat in the back to increase shoulder movement, you'll feel comfortable, safe, and fashionable during your commute.

Giro Chambray Shirt

Chambray shirts are a versatile addition to any wardrobe — and even more so when they get the bike commuter treatment. This chambray Mobility Shirt from Giro [8] ($120) has hidden back pleats and a little stretch for your ride as well as strategic darting and a slim fit for a flattering look.

Betabrand Skinny Jeans

Zippered ankles (with reflective trim), a zippered back pocket, and a hint of stretch make these Betabrand Bike to Work Jeans [9] ($118) a pair you won't want to take off.

Novara Whittier Bike Dress

Throw on the spandex/polyester Novara Whittier Bike Dress [10] ($70) and go from commute to work to happy hour without a wardrobe change. The zippered side pockets make this dress extra commuter-friendly.

Ana Nichoola Peplum Jacket

This bright cheery yellow Mello Yello Commuter Jacket [11] from Ana Nichoola (about $107) has a dropped peplum back to keep you covered when on your commute.
