I’m back and I have a new coat

It hasn’t actually been so long since I last rode my bike, but I kept forgetting to charge my camera batteries last week so I got no pictures. Trust me, nothing I wore was remarkable.

So how ’bout this new coat? It’s certainly not as bright as that oh-so-popular red coat, but I think it’s more me. It’s just the right length — you wouldn’t believe how hard it is to find something of just the perfect length for someone as short as I am. The cut might be less trendy than that red coat, but I think this more classic shape will last through more seasons. I can either fold down the collar or wear it up to shield my neck and face. The sleeves might look a little long, but it’s actually good to have a longer sleeve when cycling so your whole arm stays covered when you’re reaching for the handlebars. It fits great, and there’s room for piling on the layers underneath when it gets really chilly.

I’ll make a couple of modifications to the coat. Probably I’ll replace the buttons with something more snazzy and I might put some reflective material on the underside of the back of the belt so I can reverse it for night rides. I’ll let you know how it goes.
