For people who bike a lot, rides are often defined by what they wear. In the summer, it’s usually spandex or other sports clothes. In the winter, it might be ski goggles and gloves. This morning, I was granted a rare circumstance where I didn’t have to worry about what I wore at all, which was perfect.

The air was cool enough for a cozy sweater, but not so cold that I needed gloves. The sky was clear and bright, but the sun wasn’t glaring so much to warrant sunglasses. In other words, I didn’t need to wear anything special at all. I could bike and then walk into the coffee shop without switching anything out. Not that changing glasses or gloves is ever the biggest hassle, but there’s a mental liberation when you just don’t have to worry about them, either. It just feels so natural and freeing.
