Spring is quickly approaching and marks a time when we leave our homes for fresh air and physical activity. Bike riding is always a great way to get out and see the signs of spring. So thought it would be pertinent to find out how to make our bikes look even better by pimping our rides!

When riding a bicycle we need to be safe. Never ride without a helmet! With that, it does not mean your helmet has to be ordinary or boring. Why not make it unique, like this Phrenology Helmet, by kcli.

Little spray paint, a Sharpie and she took this boring helmet to a wonderful self expression.

Next in line to riding a bike would be comfort. Men and women can tell horror stories of the bad things uncomfortable bike seats can do. So as a means of comfort and showing off your talents, cover that hard seat with a Crochet Bike Seat Cover by, OhNoJo!

You can make it any color to accent your bike, and the pattern link is in the post.

When riding it’s always a good idea to have a means of caring stuff. Lunch, phone, groceries, Frisbee, books, etc. So now Kittykill shows how to create a Bike Caddy with Pockets.

Jazz up your bike and place to put things. Love that!

Lastly, since all the crafty people of Craftster like glitter, and some even consider it there go to supply, why not use it on your bike?! Check out this Wicked Rainbow Glitter Bike, by Lilak Tygress.

She finished off the look by putting Elfaba on her basket.

Before you go tooling around on your bike this spring, beautify your ride and make it uniquely you. 🙂
