Editor Trades Car Service for BikePosted on Oct 30th 2009 3:00PM by Kristen Seymour
The motivation behind this choice is twofold. For one thing, it's active and healthy, which fits right in with Danziger's lifestyle. According to The New York Times, on the morning they caught up with the editor, she'd already run six miles before leaving (on her bike) at 8 a.m.
Additionally, it's a nod to the chilly economic climate. With all of the publications Condé Nast has shut down and the budget cuts they've asked remaining mags to make, it makes perfect sense that employees would find alternate means of transportation. It seems as though Danziger is leading by example, however, can you imagine Anna Wintour doing such a thing?
According to the source, Danziger was able to make this commute in chic designer clothes and with coffee in hand. And, of course, she arrived at work without the slightest trace of helmet hair. I don't know about you, but I'm in awe. Whenever I've biked to a destination, I've shown up a sweaty mess. Perhaps Danziger will share her tips for stylish bike commuting in an upcoming issue.
