You won’t find spandex shorts at this Tribeca bicycle shop, where owner Julie Hirschfeld offers a fashionable selection of European two-wheelers and snazzy accessories. The store allows shoppers to test ride bikes at nearby Washington Market Park or along the West Side Greenway path. We’re aching for a spin on one of the Pashley Princess Sovereign cycles ($1,295), which are built in the U.K. town Stratford-upon-Avon and come with wicker baskets, perfect for schlepping Saturday Greenmarket goodies. Gentlemen, meanwhile, might take to the Pashley Guv’nor one-speed ($1,595), an updated path racer from the 1930s, adorned with leather grips, a Brooks saddle and titanium rails. Sold? Keep your noggin in one piece with a lightweight Bern Berkeley helmet ($70).
