The weather has been terrific in Florida lately, perfect for a day of bike riding. My boyfriend and I are both avid bicyclists, so we and a friend decided to tackle a portion of the Pinellas Trail, a gorgeous paved bike trail in Pinellas county. The temperature was just chilly enough to need a long sleeve, so I decided to use layers to my advantage and be prepared for the changes in body temperature that come with exercise.
The long sleeve layering was an item I got on my recent consignment trip, so I was happy to get to use it. The t-shirt is from a theme park
The shorts are some hand-me-down dress pants that I hemmed, because I have a lot of trouble finding shorts that fit me in the stores. Shoes are plain ole’ Chuck Taylors, which are pretty comfy for cycling. The bag is Timbuk2, and I bought it in New York. It has lots of handy compartments, and the added benefit of being relatively water-proof, which is important for outdoor activities. I kept my jewelry and make-up simple, because I knew that I would be getting a bit sweaty, and I didn’t want anything getting snagged on my helmet.
Be prepared for a post tomorrow on all the details of this super-fun day trip! Stay tuned for part 2!
