Velo Girls kit goes retro...


Here I am modeling the new 'retro' Velo Girls kit for 2007. OK, not really. This was taken on a cool day while riding around Lake Tahoe. We'll all have to wait a few more weeks for the unveiling of the kit. Until then, I am Tri-Flow girl or Sea-Otter girl or whatever eclectic, retro-grouch jersey I pull out of the closet. Even when the kit comes, I will be making it look extra-frumpy with wool base layers while riding around my fully-fendered bike with mudflaps and handlebars so high they get altitude sickness. Oh, yes, I will be my phredly best until spring comes and I can get all hopped up on full-carbon dodads while zipping around in my spandex skin-suit down in the drops.

At least I've continued leg-shaving into the winter months, so if there's a warm day, I can morph into racer-chick for the day. :)

VG, I can't remember exactly where...it was some random bike shop the boy and I wandered into. It was the only one and was like $15. But, it's a wool/acrylic blend and uber-itchy. So, I handed it down to my friend Debbie recently.
