How to bike while wearing a skirt is not something I've ever really thought about, I have to admit. But if I ever decide to ride while wearing a kilt, I'll be sure to try this clever tip by Johanna Holtan, the creator of Penny in yo' Pants.

And if this is too low tech for you, Johanna writes: "We are currently making a new model of Penny in Yo’ Pants to prevent the puckering of skirt fabric that happens when you use a penny. We also want to make it even easier to cycle with a skirt! We will launch this new product through Kickstarter."

And if you're biking in Canada where the penny is no more, no problem:
