 Auckland cyclists will have a chance to show that their fashion sense extends beyond lycra tights and stream-lined helmets in next Thursday's Cycle Style Auckland event.

Shed 1 at the Viaduct Harbour will play host to the event that will feature local fashion designers, bicycle retailers and street style.

Coordinator Pippa Coom said the event aimed to show that it was possible to use a bike for everyday use and still look stylish.

"Cycling in stylish street wear is considered the norm in many cities around the world where there is investment in cycle-friendly facilities," she said.

"Women in particular are put off cycling when it's associated with sweaty lycra and unattractive clothes."
