Ok, it’s still cold as fuck, and you’re going to want to ride out the rest of the endless winter in sweatshirt and fleece pajama pants. You have no idea how many concerts, parties, and booty calls I’ve passed up this winter to watch 1950s scare movies about teenage girl gangs while wrapped up in blankets and my favorite sweat shirt. It helps with the S.A.D. if your pajama wear is at least a little snappy, like this sweatshirt from Mash SF.
Dark 25L Backpack – $45
Dakine isn’t really a brand you hear about too often, because they mostly make mountain/camping/ski gear and presumably that’s all dorky or ill suited to cycling, but they’re actually a super tight mountain biking company and this cute little patterned backpack would be great for urban commuter use.
Twin Six Jesus T – $12
So I said to the Lord, “You promised me Lord, that if I followed you, you would bike with me always. But I have noticed that during the most trying periods of my life, there have only been one set of tire marks in the sand. Why, when I needed you most, have you have not been there for me?”
The Lord replied, “The times when you have seen only one set of tire marks, is when you drafted me.”
Fox Womens Flygirl Jersey – $54.95
Ok, I know what you’re thinking. Fox is synonymous with those burly jock assholes in your high school with rich dads who bought them dirtbikes, who had frosted hair and girlfriends who teased you. But this is a legit four-way-stretch jersey with three rear pockets that looks like a normal shirt. It even has an “Interior Optics Wipe” on the inside hem, for all my fellow four-eyed motherfuckers.
Confidential to girls who ride their bikes to work: throw a black cardigan over this, and you’ll be business casual. No one needs to know it’s soaked in sweat.
I’m pretty into “babe” as a genderneutral term. See also: cuties, dudes, and “all y’all motherfuckers.” Genderfuck the english language, y’all.
