Have you ever done it?
The other day when we went to the Denver Chalk Art Festival we decided to park up in the Highlands and ride B Cycles down to Larimer Square to avoid paying the heft $20 parking fees.
It wasn’t so bad!! Granted, my dress was about the perfect length – just to the knee. Not too long so it would get tangled. And not so short that it would be immodest.
You know who else rode bikes in dresses?
Anne Shirley, that’s who! Do you love Gilbert Blythe like I do? As a side note, when I was Googling for that picture, I came across this little gem in Prince Edward Island: A 6-day bike tour through Anne of Green Gables country.
Wouldn’t that be fun?! And form what I can tell there’s no camping involved.
Anyhow, back to my topic. When we got back home, I did some researching.
You can buy one of these handy skirt garters from Etsy for windy days! You could probably DIY that, but it’s selling for $12.
You can also invest in a skirt guard.
That would probably be more helpful for longer skirts/dresses.
I’m afraid there’s no hope for the pencil skirts I typically wear to the office!
Not much going on this Tuesday, I’m afraid.
I learned not to use kale in lasagna.
It was as gross as it looks. When I used spinach, it worked really well! It was one of my favorite lasagnas ever. But I fed half of the insides of this one to Boyd. It tasted way too vegetable-y. It’s one of the perks of having a dog, people!!
Further proof that I’m annoying:
At our apartment gym today, Kevin covered his treadmill screen so I couldn’t read his MPH and tell him to go faster. Or race him! I can barely see it from my treadmill anyways without my glasses. Lol. But I must have been a little too obvious today!
Have you ever biked in a dress/skirt?Just the once that I can remember.
Do you have a bike? If so, what kind? Or what kind do you think would be good for me? I need tips. I’m always looking at Craigslist cruisers, but I’m jut not sure how to choose! Of course, “cuteness” is very important, but other than that?
Have you seen Anne of Green Gables? I really want to get it from the library now!
Fun related post from Cup of Jo: Did you hear this crazy story: In late May, a NYC cop allegedly pulled over a Dutch tourist, pictured below, and reprimanded her for riding a bike while wearing a skirt. He said she was distracting cars! At first, she thought he was kidding, but quickly realized he wasn’t when he asked for her ID. How insane is that?! So, as a lighthearted protest, a bunch of girls (and a few guys) came together for a skirt bike ride yesterday evening
