ON BIKE CULTURE IN EUGENE | Fine blogging since 2010 (with periodic long breaks)

Look, ma! No pants!

No, this isn’t another post about the World Naked Bike Ride. Today is the much celebrated holiday known as “the first day of the year that I felt confident enough to head off for work without either wearing rain pants or packing them in my bag.”

Hence this:

Stylish, huh? I’ll give it a 3 on the 1-to-5 dorkiness scale — compared with the “pant-leg roll” (4) or the “sock tuck” (5!).

Actually, I was pretty proud of myself for coming up with this little improvisation as I was heading out the door this morning:

  1. Punctured old inner tube that I’ll never get around to patching.
  2. Pocket knife.
  3. Voilà!

So. Enjoy the sun. And I hope I haven’t declared “Rain-gear-free day” prematurely — it’s happened before.
