Top 5 Bags for a Bike Ride: Pedal Power

Of all the bags out there, the bicycle is naturally synonymous with the messenger. But your workaday bike messenger is not likely to be seen with any of these hands-free carryalls! No, even while pedaling, whether your working a beach-cruiser or a cityslicker, a snob must have a bag to match her activity. Here, my current favorite bike-riding bags, no basket required:

1. Lanvin Opanca Bag PM: Cruise the streets in a classy take on the camera bag. Snap photos while you sightsee during the day, then take this versatile mini into afterhours.
At Barneys New York for $1,290.

2. Jason Wu Messenger Patent-Trimmed Leather Tote: Have a whole day’s worth of gear to pack? Not only is Wu’s tote 40% off, it provides you with your neon fix, without going overboard.
On Net-a-Porter for $957 (from $1,595).

3. Barneys New York Co-Op Hunting Bag: Play up your preppy side with this crisp canvas frugal find that is sure to rest comfortably across your shoulder.
At Barneys New York for $359 (from $595).

4. Marni Straw-Trimmed Jacquard Shoulder Bag: This beachy shoulder style functions just as well as a backpack, so you can be free and unencumbered as you cruise around seaside.

5. Bottega Veneta Large Buffalo Sport Messenger: The ultimate city-girl messenger brings chic to street. A bag to cherish on your wheels and in your heels.
