Tired of cramming your bag into the front rack of a Capital Bikeshare? Rebecca Minkoff gets it. WWD reports that the designer recently partnered with Bloomingdale's to create the Bike Share backpack, a sturdy and lightweight nylon and leather backpack that fits a laptop, water bottle, and more. The bag is $195, but here's the coolest part — and a portion of proceeds from all bag sales will go to charities that work to make bikers safer in New York, Chicago, San Francisco and Washington, D.C. The charity in D.C. is the Washington Area Bicyclists Association.
