From the Bicycling Mag Files // Commute Like a Boss, Sweat in Style, Care for Your Skin
Busy week for me at Bicycling mag! With summer coming, that means more time for riding, which means—for those of us who write about it—more to write about! A few of my recent favorites:
I loved searching for the best and the brightest kits for the summer. While I’m a huge fan of neutral colors and simple patterns, it was still a blast to search around for the whackiest stuff I could find. (The photo above is a SheBeest kit, and it’s one of the best-fitting kits I’ve ever worn.)
I had so many people reach out when I asked for commuter stories that it was simply unreal. And the great advice from a bunch of them… well, it’ll make you a better commuter, or give you the motivation to start!
Summer means, sadly, skin “issues” crop up thanks to extra sweat and ick-factor. Plus, fun stuff like sunburn. I rounded up a few of my favorite products for keeping your skin reasonably happy this summer—lots of options ranging from all-natural and organic to drugstore buys under $10, so there’s something for everyone. (And I’m finally getting behind dry shampoo for helmet hair and sweat issues. It’s time.)
