I recently found two wonderful new blogs that have inspired me to make biking around town an even bigger part of my life. I’m sure I don’t need to tell you why the blog Copenhagen Cycle Chic really spins my wheels (if you know me at all you’ll understand), but allow me to show you a little something:
Ahhh, that’s it. Seeing all these fashionable people cycling their way around the city inspires me to want to do more of the same.
Likewise there’s Sarah & her friends at Girls & Bicycles, who are both fashionable and socially conscious riding their bikes around in Edmonton, Alberta. (Why are Danes and Canadians always so cool? Is it because they all have health care? PROBABLY.)

So as you can imagine, with all this inspiration I was super excited about my bike this week. I planned to ride into campus every day without worrying over my fashion and maybe just maybe busting out a pair of chic heels like I used to do when I commuted around Zembla.
Of course it was pouring down rain when I left the house this morning, though, and (CONFESSION!) I do not even own a raincoat, so the bike ride of my dreams did not take place. There’s always tomorrow!
Raincoat Sidebar: You may be wondering why I, someone who lived in the rainiest region of the country for seven years, do not own a raincoat. Friends, your guess would be as good as mine. I just don’t. Call it a protest.
