Perhaps you noticed it last summer or maybe you just realized it last week, but bike shorts have become almost as ubiquitous as basic black leggings. And not just among cyclists who are avid road racers. We’re talking everyone, everywhere, who leaned into the athleisure look for obvious reasons: These stretchy spandex shorts are comfortable, easy-to-wear, super cute and great for impromptu (or planned!) athletic activities but are also great for lounging on the couch.

And while there’s no greater thrill than picking out a cute outfit that feels very spring appropriate, there’s no greater disappointment than realizing it is not bike-friendly at all. Regardless, we’ve got your back so you can rock your spring and summer finest on your Bluejay, without suffering any wardrobe malfunctions.
