A retractable bicycle fender has a bistable Spring strip with an elastomeric grommet at the end. A hole goes through the grommet and the Spring strip to allow mounting on a bicycle seat post. Plastic wings coat the edges of the Spring strip to increase the width of the fender and reduce the noise and rate of recoil. The bicycle fender can be manually extended in wet weather and recoiled in dry weather.
