Kirsten is one of those enviable souls who commutes to work by bicycle. And not just any bike—a great Euro-styled commuter bike (also called a Dutch bike) by PUBLIC Bikes. It reminds me of the Peugeot my mom rode around on in the ’70s (with me on the back in my little seat, usually holding the groceries). Except Kirsten’s is a modern take on a classic. It just looks old; it’s state-of-the-art.
Kirsten is just as stylish as her bike. Most people I know love her glasses, but her outfit is pretty sweet too. I like when urban riders don’t dress for the Tour de France when dressing for work will do.
When Kirsten’s not cruisin’ to work, she plays upright bass in a Seattle rockabilly band, The Black Crabs. Can’t get much cooler than that. Go have a listen on the band’s Facebook page. Tell her Jean of all Trades sent you.
