Let's Get Visible!
Often I am asked if I get nervous or scared pedaling my bike in traffic. Not really. Life is a risk but I don't see bike commuting as particularly risky if I do my best to follow the rules of the road, pay attention to what I am doing and what is going on around me, and make myself visible. Regular, SRAB visitors might recognize my JCrew mustard, swing jacket purchased last year at the Anthem outlet. Very fashionable and very visible. I love the bright color and it never fails to get noticed. Recently, I visited Sundara at 22 East Route 66 in downtown Flagstaff and caught sight of this similarly visible yellow trench coat. If Secret Agent 99 rode a bike, she would have worn this trench. Perfect for a not too chilly fall day (still the norm in Flagstaff). It is thin so it won't do for the very cold winter weather to come but I would definitely wear it this time of year and in the spring.
When warmth is necessary, I'd just wrap one of these hand made scarves around my neck. Also at Sundara. I've been wearing a lot of scarves lately and thought these looked scrumptious. All for $30 or less.
