Bike DressingPosted: May 15, 2012
In my last bike post, I promised to write a followup addressing how I ride my men’s road bike when everything I own is either short or tight (ahem, both).
Well, short and tight is exactly why it works.
Think about it. Short and flowy wouldn’t work because a gust of wind would screw me, especially on the sea wall where oncoming bicycle traffic is endless. Long and tight is impossible to ride in, especially on a men’s bike. And long and flowy, although currently on trend, is just not me. A short and tight dress or skirt, however, when worn with bikini bottoms underneath is the sartorially acceptable equivalent of wearing bicycle shorts. Let me demonstrate.

See, super easy. I couldn’t possibly have that much fun if I were worried about exposing something.
Note: For the purpose of these photos, I took my helmet off. But I always wear one when I ride. A helmet looks uncool but you know what’s even more uncool? Having your brains splattered on the street. Be smart. Be safe.
