When you’re biking in the city you want to be as visible as possible. One way to do that is to get some bright yellow gear:


However on a recent ride on my new bike across town to Jamaica Plain I discovered a new way to be visible… wear a ridiculously awesome (and very short) leopard print romper purchased on sale for $9.99:


It seemed to stop traffic. Or at least slow it down quite a bit. A few cars even seemed happy to follow me. One driver hollered something– but this time it wasn’t an insult.

I shudder to think what the male equivalent of a short leopard-print skirt would be, or the reaction it was garner…

wow, this is just too excellent. and so true. the extra attention and ‘caution’ cars display around me when I’m biking in a skirt [with bike shorts underneath!] is often a bit too much for comfort.

bahahahahaa…so when is your urban lady commuter graphic novel/comic book coming out? those moments can be really annoying if you’re not in the mood but i love the humorous spin on it!

Anyone who would wear a leopard print romper must be able to rock it. Also, nice bargain shopping! I love finds like that.

I have a feeling if I wore a leopard print romper on my bike, I’d probably get intentionally run over 🙂
