I never really got the whole bike jersey thing. I understand the fitted element. Less flapping. Got it. But does it really matter if the waistband and arm sleeves have elastic? And do you need a zipper in the front? Is this uncomfortable aerodynamic clothing design going to make me any faster? No. No way. But I wear it anyway. Partly to look the part:) And partly because, okay, I do hope it gives me wings. The one aspect of the bike jersey that I really like - is the back pocket. I decided to bring my camera with me on our long ride up to Nyack yesterday - and with relative ease, I was able to reach around and grab it on the go. It probably wasn't within the code of Bike Safety 101, but I was so happy to finally be able to capture our ride like this. And how great is this rainbow welcoming us back to our borough?
