Phil Gaimon’s New Rules of Cycling

This rule spoke to me the most:

Rule #2: Wear whatever the hell you want.

Indeed, indeed! I’ve already written on this blog about how I don’t wear cycling jerseys. Now, I haven’t gotten weird looks or anything on group rides (at least none that I’ve noticed!) but even if I did it won’t make me want to change what I wear. Like Phil says, wear whatever you want and don’t worry what other people think!

I gotta say, I really like this guy! Phil’s rules to me, while entertaining, are refreshing. It’s nice to see someone who is a professional go out of their way to express to non-professionals that it’s ok to not bike like a pro. Be yourself but also be courteous to others. Just have fun!  :D
