One of the persistent complaints I've gotten about our series of bike ride videos was that they featured people "all dressed up in biking armor". Cycling attire is function-specific, and makes cycling both more comfortable and efficient. However, there may be times when it's inappropriate or unnecessary, especially for short rides in an urban environment.
Well, here's a mild-mannered lady (Ms. Keri Caffrey, a graphic designer/art director by trade) cruising the streets of Orlando, Florida on a comfort bike. Casually attired in shorts, polo shirt, and sneakers, she could be on her way to enjoy a double no-fat Macchiato at Starbucks™, or perhaps making a quick run to Whole Foods™ for some fresh arugula.
Again shot by Brian DeSousa of CyclistView (from his tiny folding bike), Keri demonstrates the typical experience of a vehicular cyclist who obeys the laws and controls her lane.
Welcome to the real world. As the Nike ad says, "Just do it!"
