Saturday Style Ride with GANT
Photography by Andrea Monica Hug.
A couple of weeks ago, along with Andrea and Michèle, I was invited by GANT to take part in the Saturday Style Ride. We all met at Stilrad in the morning to pick up our bikes and then went on to the GANT store were we picked up our looks. I opted for a summer-chic outfit wearing a grey bomber jacket, a striped button-down shirt and a pair of white chinos.
Now that we were all set and ready we headed for lunch just around the corner of where the starting point was. After finishing our delicious meal we strolled between all those stylish ladies and gents and gazed at their outfits and bikes. Some of them had really been planning their looks for weeks and pimped their bikes to perfection. At 2 PM the tour started that would take us across Zurich with two stops to refresh and get off the saddle (I was pretty sored the next two days). 3 hours later we arrived at our destination: the Carlton restaurant just off Bahnhofstrasse. As it was a sunny Saturday lots of people were out on the streets and we were a true attraction - 300 stylishly dressed bikers cycling through Zurich, you just had to turn your head!
In the end we were all a bit sweaty and exhausted, but it was so much fun and totally worth it! Thanks to Jeroen von Rooijen for organizing the event and GANT for having me. Head over to Andrea's blog to see who won the Style Ride Award 2015 and go to the offical site of the Saturday Style Ride for more impressions.
