Riding on Bikes in Heels

December 4, 2008

Okay, okay its cold outside.

Like freezing. Brrr.

As a result, I do not ride my vintage Schwinn around like I used to.

It takes a special type of person to ride their bike during the cold, bitter winter and I am NOT. that. person. at. all.

So, it sits propped up in my apartment as some type of metal ornament.

Mostly, the basket holds little odds and ends.

Really, what all this rambling about is that when I do ride my bike, I’m not always the most practical. I mean if I’m wearing non-tight jeans, I know to hitch and roll up my right leg because I don’t want the extra fabric to get caught in my chain and cause a nasty accident. Let’s not even get into the helmet situation, as in I don’t wear one. My bike is soo heavy that its more of a leisure type of activity and that means that I have ridden in heels. Not practical at all (good thing I didn’t have to go far), but it was definitely eye-catching. So, of course when I saw this picture it made me smile because I have been there, done that.
