Video: Penny in Yo Pants, How to Cycle in a Skirt

If someone gave me a penny for every time I wanted to ride a bicycle in a skirt, but couldn’t because I didn’t want to expose myself, I’d theoretically have enough pennies to accomplish this simple life hack. The idea came when the group of inventors attended CycleHack, a 48 hour event aimed “at making cities more cycle friendly.” During the event, people are encouraged to come up with an idea that solves a barrier to cycling, and find a simple solution. So ladies (and gents, or gents in kilts) remember to keep a penny and a rubber band on hand, and treasure every moment of this summer.

Genius idea! It just goes to show that the most practical solutions needn’t cost the earth.
