i rediscovered biking as a great way to travel. it just happend this year when my mum bought a bike for me and persuaded me to go for a little bike tour. and what can i say? since then i love it! everytime i'm there i'll find an opportunity to get my bike out and ride it.
one of the major reasons i didn't even consider riding a bike was the thought that you can never ride a bike AND be dressed fashionable the same time. i love high heels, and most of my clothes look nice, but aren't that practical. but my biggest problem is my obsession for huge huge bags!
where the heck can i put my giant bags without jeopardizing them?! well, to be honest, i didn't find a solution for that problem yet. so for the moment i have to content myself with the medium size bags that would fit into my bicycle bascket when i plan to ride my bike.
but the rest is absolute viable, like high heels (esp stilletos) or wide leg pants (just put a hair tie around your ankle and stuff the seam under it).
but there are a few things you should avoide when riding a bike (not just for your best, but also for the other people that see you on the street^^):
- don't wear hipsters (nobody wnats to see your plumber's crack)
- don't wear mini skirts (same with your slip - that's nobody elses' business)
- no smartphone (accident risk! facebook&co can wait until you reached your destination safely)
i think that's all. hmmm, i guess i should all tell you now to wear a helmet - yeah, do that! well actually, i don't...
