You don’t have to dress like a bank-robbing arctic ninja to stay warm walking and biking around town in the winter. Not even in Boston. Common sense stay-warm fashion tips from Bikeyface. In cartoon form of course.
Commuting in style
The San Francisco Chronicle has noticed that some people ride bikes without any funny clothes. I’m happy about this, but at the same time, it’s a little strange that it’s news. Hopefully in another few years, it’ll seem so normal, nobody notices.
The holes in my woolens
I discovered a couple of small holes in one of my my merino sweaters this morning. Moth larvae. My fault for not using camphor or some other kind of deterrant. At first, I was bummed because I thought this represented a flaw – I love wool, and especially merino, because it’s warm even when it’s wet, it wicks, it doesn’t smell, it doesn’t burn and melt like plastic, it’s durable and comfortable and not based on petrochemicals. But moths can eat it, and it can mold. It requires more care than fleece. Thinking just a little more, it occurred to me that actually, these holes are in some sense a feature, not a bug.
