Fashion Olympics.

A: Um:

M: Effortless! Perfectly acceptable bike riding footwear.

A: She is gonna bust her ass.

M: Bless her heart.

A: She seems to be struggling. FASHION IS HARD.

M: "Why do the street style people like bikes so much? WHY?"

A: I think they're all hoping she will bust her ass. I know I am.

M: It's like the moddle Olympics. Up next, running across subway grates in stilettos.

A: Walking through traffic in heels is the gymnastics of the moddle Olympics:

M: Is she wearing an unfastened straight jacket? Don't answer that. I don't really care.

A: And finally, the main event! The sockless man stroll:

M: So many sweaty feet in one place should be illegal.

A: Someone is going to win the foot blister category for sure.

M: Gross.

A: Gold medal! In foot stank!

  1. Cycling like that IS perfectly normal, you Americans you. It doesn't have to be all lycra and no mudguards, you know. (Is she going uphill? It does look a little strained.)

    1. Street clothes, sure. But 5" platform wedges? No. Sorry, just no.

    2. Oh live a little. I cycle in the clogs. But I have to plan my brakes a bit then... and I'd not cycle with the kid on the bike seat then. Pedalling is fine but hopping off is exciting.

    3. That sounded snarkier than I intended. It was more live a little and a cute smiley emoticon to go with it like. ;D

    4. I live in Europe and, as I live and breathe, I have never EVER cycled in platform wedges :)

  2. the bevy of sockless men:
    they look like they have been held against their will in their private boys elementary school and just escaped at age 25.
