Yes. I bought a bike. Fed up with the TTC, I had to take matters into my own hands. I was hesitant at first but after a quick city session, I was a pro in no time. In my opinion, biking is the best method of transportation. It’s green, it’s fast (seriously it takes less time than the subway/streetcar), it’s never crowded, and it forces me to exercise. Honestly, if I can bike in the city with my coordination, anyone can.
The first thing I learned about joining the bike life is to wear the proper equipment (this includes your outfit).
#1. I promise you no one looks cool wearing it (hence the lack of photographic evidence above), but you need to splurge on a helmet, this could save your life one day.
#2. High waisted pants. I know Calvin Klein’s are super trendy but no one actually wants to see them, so invest in high waisted pants and avoid the public embarrassment. Also these embroidered Fidelity Denim Woodstock Gwen Crops will be the perfect addition to your spring wardrobe.
Stay safe & happy biking.
