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.
