Fahrradsport Wednesday - Tights
It's been a while since my last cycling post, and that's because a sheet of ice has covered Berlin for the last two months. Well, the ice is gone and I'm cycling again. I don't have tons of time, but I feel the need to procrastinate and a blog post will do nicely for the moment.
I bought some cycling tights while we were in the States over Xmas. A really nice pair of Pearl Izumi tights from REI. They have kept me warm on sub-zero days and kept me dry (and warm) on just-above-zero days with nasty drizzly rain. So far I'm quite impressed.
When I cycle to the lab, I'm usually the first one there and one of the last ones to leave, so no one really has had a chance to see me in my fancy new tights. Today, though, I had to pick up Baby Bird from kita and thus had to leave at 15:00. Well, let's just say that Germans apparently seem to be perfectly at ease with cat calling with exuberant vigor. Enough to make me blush.
