Throwing fashion to the wind

I don't really fit into the cyclist community just yet by evidence of this picture:


Yes, I wore my big mother sunglasses on my bike ride this weekend. Oh, and I wore a tank top. I don't have the cool bike outfit or the gloves or the fancy sunglasses. I'm all wrong here. However, I didn't fall. And so, I think it was a successful ride.

I am however deathly scared of crossing lanes of traffic to turn left at a light. I am tempted to buy one of those little mirrors that attach to my helmet. Will I look like total tool if I do that? Probably. But it's a sacrifice I am willing to make. So, the next time you see a girl with big sunglasses, unofficial riding attire and a mirror stuck to the side of her head - honk and wave. I need all the encouragement I can get.

Um why wouldn't you wear a tank top. You don't want to risk getting a farmer's tan. That would pretty much be the end of the world.

I don't think I will honk and wave... because then you WILL in fact crash... and we don't want to break your streak.

P.S. Cycling jerseys are ugly... tank tops are sexy... and guys like to see a sexy female cyclist... show some cleavage and you'll have dates for a month!
