Shopping for a Sheclisma: Keep her ears warm

Cycling caps are great. Winter cycling caps with earflaps are even greater. Why not keep your favorite lady's ears warm?

Check out that wooliness! Can someone say EAR SWEATERS??


Little Package caps are handmade by female cyclist Caroline, who lives in Portland. In addition to her upcycled wool caps, she also makes custom designs. Check out her storefront for loads of unique selections for women or men. She'll do caps for newborns, too!

The Gift of Knowledge

In our second installment of shopping by/for a Sheclisma, how about giving the gift of knowledge?

As I enter my fifth winter of year-round bike commuting, I can't even count the excuses I've heard from people on how much they'd like to do what I do but [_________] or [___________] or [_________]. Give the gift of helpful hints to get a new everyday cyclist on her (or his) way with a copy of Elly Blue's Everyday Bicycling.


Elly's blog, Taking the Lane, is just fantastic. Plus, she's an advocate for female cyclists of all stripes, and provided sponsorship for our Midwest CX Stitch series in the form of a pack of her beautiful 'zines. While you're at her site, pick up some of those 'zines or bike stickers, too!

Shopping for a Sheclisma: Iva Jean's Reveal Skirt

We're kicking off a new series for this holiday season and posting some cool stuff sheclismas like.

First up is the Iva Jean Reveal Skirt

What can I say? I've been looking for this for the last two years. I even considered learning to do more than make curtains on my sewing machine. I am saved, however, thanks to Iva Jean.
